Compiler and JVM Research at JKU

Since 2001 the Institute for System Software at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) in Linz, Austria, has been collaborating with Sun Microsystems and later with Oracle on dynamic compiler optimizations and JVM-related research topics. Some of the PhD theses developed at our institute found their way into the current product version of the Java HotSpot™ VM and the JDK.

Currently, we are cooperating with Oracle Labs and its branch at JKU. The current main research artefacts are the Graal Compiler and the Truffle Language Implementation Framework. This page describes our present and previous research:

Most of this work was funded by Oracle. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Virtual Machine Research Group at Oracle Labs as well as the help of the Java HotSpot™ Team.

There is an overview article about our work published in the International Innovation Magazine in July 2013. International Innovation is the leading global dissemination resource for the wider scientific, technology and research communities, dedicated to disseminating the latest science, research and technological innovations on a global level. More information and a complimentary subscription offer to the publication can be found at: www.research-europe.com.
