<p>This section describes the architecture of Jikes RVM. The RVM can be divided into the following components:</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="Core Runtime Services.html" title="Core Runtime Services">Core Runtime Services</a>: (thread scheduler, class loader, library support, verifier, etc.) This element is responsible for managing all the underlying data structures required to execute applications and interfacing with libraries.</li>
<li><a href="Magic.html" title="Magic">Magic</a>: The mechanisms used by Jikes RVM to support low-level systems programming in Java.</li>
<li><a href="Compilers.html" title="Compilers">Compilers</a>: (baseline, optimizing, JNI) This component is responsible for generating executable code from bytecodes.</li>
<li><a href="MMTk.html" title="MMTk">Memory managers</a>: This component is responsible for the allocation and collection of objects during the execution of an application.</li>
<li><a href="Adaptive Optimization System.html" title="Adaptive Optimization System">Adaptive Optimization System</a>: This component is responsible for profiling an executing application and judiciously using the optimizing compiler to improve its performance.</li>
</ul>
