"helloworld" with Maxine JVM on Mac

Last night, I listened to this nice podcast on Maxine JVM from Software Engineering Radio. Maxine is a Java Virtual Machine implemented in the Java programming language.

I wanted to try out Maxine on my MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.5.8. I followed these steps to try it out:

  • Get the Maxine sources
    
        hg clone https://kenai.com/hg/maxine~maxine maxine
    
    
  • Setup the environment
    
        export JAVA_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home
        export JUNIT4_CP=<full-path-of junit-4.4.jar>
    
    
  • Build Maxine
    
       cd $MAXINE_HOME/bin
       ./max build
       ./max image   
    
    
  • Run the "helloworld"
    
        ./max helloworld
    
    

Wow! Maxine VM printed "Hello World!". Now, it is time to explore Maxine's inspector and other cool stuff ...
