- Excerpted from Jikes FAQ: In 2001, early versions of Jikes RVM were made available to 16 universities under a pre-release license. These universities found that Jikes RVM provides the best available vehicle for research on the frontiers of virtual machine technology. Many of these universities discarded their own efforts in building a VM for research purposes in favor of using Jikes RVM. Furthermore, since the open source release of Jikes RVM in October 2001, dozens of publications have appeared at top conferences written by users of the system. Numerous courses have been taught using Jikes RVM. Over 80 universities have used Jikes RVM.
