There's now some information about Sun's new HotSpot Java Compiler
How does this compare to Squeak ?
Another interesting comparison with Squeak from that paper:
"Classes, methods, and other internal reflective data are represented
directly as objects on the heap (although those objects may not be
directly accessible to Java programs). This not only simplifies the
memory model, but allows classes to be collected by the same
garbage collector used for other Java language objects."
So it is all there, you just cannot get to it in Java! Maybe they'd
SqueaZ a Smalltalk in alongside Java so programmers can actually use
