​I last wrote Java code at 1.5 (before they dropped the '1.' prefix).  At
the time I was only aware of the JVM from Sun and the new Open Source one
that was being developed.  I really haven't followed Java that closely
since. These lightweight JVMs sound interesting.  I gather that's why my
Android phone is usable.  Any pointers to other JVMs?
