The partnership will develop demonstrations of managed runtime systems using OpenJDK, Graal and Truffle to work with Arm’s prototype Morello SOC, previously awarded UKRI funding. We are working to demonstrate the feasibility and benefits of running e-commerce application software stacks on Morello’s Capability Hardware Enhanced ISA.
The overall purpose is to investigate how to improve the security of the Hotspot JVM and managed languages in general by taking advantage of the Arm Morello architecture. Thus, the job involves helping to complete the port of Hotspot JVM, Graal, Truffle and modern garbage collection algorithms to the Arm Morello architecture as well as prototyping research ideas, evaluate them and write research papers based on the research.
