The performance of virtual machines (e.g., Java Virtual Machines---JVMs) can be significantly improved when critical code sections (e.g., Java bytecode methods) are migrated from software to reconfigurable hardware. In contrast to the compile-once-run-anywhere concept of virtual machines, reconfigurable applications lack portability and transparent SW/HW interfacing: applicability of accelerated hardware solutions is often limited to a single platform. In this work, we apply a virtualisation… CONTINUE READING
