Getting MMTk and Jikes RVM and Eclipse working.
  1. Download Jikes RVM version 3.0.1 or later
  2. Ensure you can Build and Run the RVM.
  3. Ensure you can build and run the BaseBaseNoGC configuration (build with: bin/buildit localhost BaseBaseNoGC, run with something like:

    dist/BaseBaseNoGC_ia32-linux/rvm HelloWorld

    Note that this configuration does not perform garbage collection so can only run small benchmarks which do not exhaust available memory. This configuration will be used as the basis for the tutorial.

  4. Ensure that your source is successfully imported (and editable) within an IDE such as Eclipse.
Creating The Base Tutorial Collector
  1. Copy the org.mmtk.plan.nogc package to org.mmtk.plan.tutorial (copy and paste the package in Eclipse).
  2. Rename the constituent classes from NoGC* to Tutorial* (use Refactor->Rename on each class in Eclipse).
  3. Create a new configuration file, build/configs/, with a single line: config.mmtk.plan=org.mmtk.plan.tutorial.Tutorial
  4. Build and run the resulting collector:
    • build with something like:

      bin/buildit localhost BaseBaseTutorial


    • run with something like:

      dist/BaseBaseTutorial_ia32-linux/rvm HelloWorld
