Virtual Machines, Managed Code and Component Technology
Gough, John (2005) Virtual Machines, Managed Code and Component Technology. In Australian Software Engineering Conference, March 30 - April 1 2005, Brisbane, Australia.
Abstract machines have been used as an implementation mechanism for programming languages for more than thirty years. In their latest incarnation execution engines based on virtual machines offer "Managed Execution". The implications of this change go far beyond the superficial advantages of platform portability and go to the heart of software reliability.
In this paper it is argued that managed execution platforms such as the .NET Common Language Runtime and the Java Virtual Machine form the only reasonable basis for trustworthy component software. There is also an overview of current research in this field, including the vexed question of version evolution.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
