Can anyone tell me, which book would help understand how the JVM works?I see two or three books like "Inside the JVM, by Bill Veneers","Programming for the Java Virtual Machine" by Engel and O'Reilly's "Java Virtual Machine".Which one is a better choice?
I have done my SCJP 1.4,SCWCD, and i have 2+ years of experience in jsp,servlets,java programming.

By considering your certifications and years of realtime experience, going through the JVM Spec by Sun itself would suffice. - As per my knowledge.

  • Java Spec Home Page
  • JVM Spec Home Page

  • HtH.
