Dynamic Code Evolution for Java

Projects > Compiler and JVM Research at JKU

The Dynamic Code Evolution Virtual Machine (DCE VM) is a modification of the Java HotSpot™ VM that allows unlimited redefinition of loaded classes at runtime. The current hotswapping mechanism of the HotSpot™ VM allows only changing method bodies. Our enhanced VM allows adding and removing fields and methods as well as changes to the super types of a class.

This is an open source project released under the GPL v2.0. For details including source code and binaries see here.
