- overview of the JIT compilers; does not exist yet: http://openjdk.java.net/groups/hotspot/docs/Compiler.html
- glossary of terms found in the HotSpot sources and documentation
- Thinking About Intermediate Representations: in general terms, what an IR is and how it works
Interesting tasks to do
- Pull documentation from internal j2se/HotspotCompilers and javaweb/hotspot/Compiler (Sun engrs. only).
- Document major classes of optimization.
