Java Report asked its contributors for feedback on what they believe to be some of the more exceptional products and tools they had encountered in 1998, and Inside the Java Virtual Machine was one of the chosen products. Here's what Antoine Trux, Java Report author, had to say about the book:
In this superb piece of work, Bill Venners explains in detail the inner workings of the Java virtual machine (JVM) by presenting possible implementations of many parts of that intricate piece of software. It is therefore a welcome complement to Sun's official specification. Each concept is clearly presented, often with the help of sample code. The accompanying CD also contains enlightening demos about the inner workings of the virtual machine. This book will be greatly appreciated not only by VM implementers, but also by anyone just curious to understand a component that's at the very heart of Java.
