Hi , My question is 1) How is KVM different from JVM other than size? 1)Since KVM is extremely small, starting from 50K in size, how could it perform the same task as performed by JVM. thanks and regards, shailendra
The quick answer is that the KVM omits many of the bulkier, more memory hungry library packages that are supplied with the standard JVM. It also has a simpler (although more draconian) security policy. The most often cited examples of where optimisations have been made are the lack of floating point arithmetic and reflection.
