Hello Ranchers,

I have some experience in Java programming. But actually I don't have the knowledge of the internal architecture of the language.
I have to learn about how objects are created, classes are loaded and all the behind the scene stuffs. How the compiler works and how the translation happens in the JVM and all.
My requirement is: when given a small Java SE program I should be able to interpret that code in the way compilers and JVM handles it. (some think like how it's stored in the runtime stack & all)

Please be kind enough to help me with some resources. This is for my university module - Object Oriented Programming Using Java

Thanks in Advance,

With Regards,
Usha

The Java Virtual Machine Specification contains a lot of details on how it all works behind the scenes.
