The Jikes RVM runtime environment implements a variety of servic= es which a Java application relies upon for correct execution. The services= include:=20
The requirement for many of these runtime services is clearly visible in= language primitives such as new(), throw() and in java.lang and java.io AP= Is such as Thread.run(), System.println(), File.open() etc. Unlike conventi= onal Java APIs which merely modify the state of Java objects created by the= Java application, implementation of these primitives requires interaction = with and modification of the platform (hardware and system software) on whi= ch the Java application is being executed.
