    I think it's second edition also.

    <http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jvms/>

    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_Virtual_Machine>

    I don't see any information to contradict that idea.

    Thanks a lot.

    Further question please:

    Any open source code for implementation of the JVM?

    TIA.

    The Java Virtual Machine Specification, 2nd Edition
    <http://java.sun.com/docs/books/vmspec/>, as amended by
    <http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jvms/second_edition/jvms-clarify.html>.

    The main points to be aware of are the gobs of class file changes (I can
    only find the Java 6 class file spec in its JSR, hidden deep) from Java
    5, the modification to the ldc instruction, and the introduction of
    invokedynamic.

    Since my involvement with the JVM internals only takes me as far as the
    class file and instruction set semantics, I don't know how substantive
    the other changes where.

    Open JDK is probably the biggest one. <http://openjdk.java.net/>
