Hi Danny!

I worked with Kaffe and other JVM with our ARM7 based board (16MB RAM, 4MB 
with both Linux (well.. uClinux :-) and eCos.

There was not an official eCos support for Kaffe at that time (only some 
patches here and there ;-)
so I decided to use Kaffe with uClinux (with very good results!) and 
anothere JVM with eCos (Wonka,
