This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum.
We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line!
See here. I don't think that any concrete implementation of the JVM (be it from Sun, IBM, Apple or other) has ever been described in detail. The Linux JVMs are open source, so you could check whether any documentation is available for them (Blackdown, SableVM, Kaffe).

You may want to check out Inside the Java 2 virtual Machine by Bill Venners. Many of the eariler chapters are available online there, and you can purchase the book for the remainder. Also, if you feel like studying Sun's own source code for the JVM, you can download it from one of the links on this page. It's written in C, so it may take some time to figure out how the pieces work. But if you really want the "complete internal structure of the JVM", that's probably the place to go. (At least for one particular JVM implementation.) I would think that you'd be much better off starting with the incomplete (and therefore much more manageable) views offered by the JVM spec and Bill Venners' book.
