Hi Ed,

Is there any shortfall or limitations in using Dalvik's VM as against Java's VM?

Do you cover any optimization techniques for Dalvik's VM in your book?

Dalvik is one implementation of a Java virtual machine. Sun has another one as part of Java Standard Edition, IBM has one, and so forth. It's surprising how many there are.

For my take on the Sun/Google Java "fight" read this: http://blogs.zdnet.com/Burnette/?p=469
