A JVM to run Java bytecode

A virtual machine designed to execute Java bytecode. Kaffe is a bit different from the non-free JVMs in that there is not one package for a JRE and one package for a JDK. Kaffe provides most of the functionality people expect from a Java Development Kit (JDK). Depending on the architecture it either provides an interpreter engine or a JIT engine (Just-in-time) for execution. If the JIT engine is available Kaffe performs "just-in-time" code conversion from the abstract code to the host machine's native code. This will ultimately allow execution of bytecode at the same speed as standard compiled code but while maintaining the advantages and flexibility of code independence.
Package version:2:1.1.8-5.2

  Notes on the kaffe-system alternatives    

  kaffe provides three different systems for execution which are 
  provided as own packages described below.

  kaffe has now support for the Java Virtual Machine Profiler 
  Interface (JVMPI). This support is enabled by default in the
  kaffe-pthreads build and enables profiling with kaffe through
  profilers supporting JVMPI like jmp (available in debian).
  kaffe-pthreads-profile is therefore no longer build on i386.
