Google has announced the successful applicants to work on the Jikes RVM for the summer of code (SoC). The mentors were surprised at the number of applicants, their diverse geographic locations, their excellent knowledge and willingness to bring contributions to the Jikes RVM. We'd really like to thank all of the applicants for applying and we're sorry that we couldn't accept more. We hope unsuccessful applicants will continue to participate with the Jikes RVM, file bug reports, talk on the mailing lists and hopefully there will be a new opportunity to take part in the SoC next year! We're now very excited now by the contributions (and hard work ) to be brought by the successful SoC applicants.
