Microkernel supports all functions of JVM and java core classes. --BillRehm
I think having all that in the kernel is more a design decision --NedLovely
Urgh. In a micro/pico/(pick words that is an antonym of monolithic) kernel architecture, only the absolute minimum of services are implemented in the mukernel itself. Every thing else is abstracted out to 'servers', which are outside processes that handle anything else. Example: OSF has Linux 2.0.29 (or so) running as a server on their Mach-esque microkernel, and since they used the GPL'd src of Linux, it's binary compatible on Mac and Intel At least one other mukernel project has done the same thing. Have at: AStartingPoint
or even MicroKernelArchitecture
Application hosting like NXHosting or Xwindows.
Would you be so kind to explain what you mean by this? If it's more than 3 lines or so, make a document...
