If somebody knows the stuff about JVM... Hoping to have a good reply for JVM geeks

Welcome to the Ranch

Try the JVM specification, or the BCEL manual, though the latter is a bit out of date.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

You can find the source code of the JVM and documentation on the OpenJDK website.

If you want to meddle ( ), maybe Jesper's link will be more useful.

Many of the older JVM books are still quite relevant; I like Venners' (he's a Scala guy). There's another one I don't remember at the moment, I might just be thinking of the old O'Reilly one.

They're fun, because they make doing fun things like load-time byte-code manipulation understandable. A lot of libraries do things like that; it's nice to know how.

I already recommended the first one; the second one is $64 used on Amazon. It's from the same era as the O'Reilly book; I wouldn't bother.
