   Maybe Java OS might be more specific and practical :) . Anyway ,it is 
on my ToDO list.

   if you wanna do hardware acceleration ,we could consider libJIT which 
is mentioned Kaffe document.

    Yep,both Kaffe and JamVM are good thing to learn. What kind of 
applications would you want to run on  AVR32? On low-end devices,enable 
JIT would be expensive.
    Now that JamVM is working on AVR32,maybe we need some benchmark or 
    I have said that I would be glad and interested to help a fresh port 
on AVR32 ,so i think  JamVM would be fine..:)

  That would be great....  There should be many experts here.....:)
