looks like people are hunching down to make sense on the future of the two JVM’s. According to a JavaLobby post..Mark Reinhold (Sun’s principal engineer)..
“..has been in several meetings with developers from Sun, Oracle, and other sources to discuss the possible integration of HotSpot and JRockit. They’re very much in the exploratory stages right now, seeing how the two JVMs will fit together.”
well its a good thing to know that that’s being contemplated, add to that the impending release of JDK7 at least I have something to look forward to.
