Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone here knows of a VM strategy for pooling JVMs? yeah I know... I'm working on a framework that uses an untrusted plugin architecture, which lets everyone load code onto a box which spawns a sandboxed version of the JVM for that user. At the same time, these have to be able to intercommunicate with each other. I'm thinking about middleware and messenger services ... but I would much rather make this simplistic as possible.

Have you considered a VM solution such as VMware or XEN?

ehhh a lightweight solution, that would be fine, only I would need to make hooks into the VM and expose them if I did it that way.. Thats a little more than I want to do. Theres always the CLI but yowsers, theres gotta be a better way..
