IKVM.NET - Java for Mono and .NET Framework
IKVM.NET is an implementation of Java for Mono and the Microsoft .NET Framework. It has JVM implemented in .NET. A .NET implementation of Java class libraries. It is interoperable between Java and .NET.
IKVM.NET includes ikvmc, a Java bytecode to .NET IL translator. If you have a Java library that you would like to use in a .NET application, run ikvmc -target:library mylib.jar to create mylib.dll.
IKVM provides a way for you to develop .NET applications in Java. Although IKVM.NET does not include a Java compiler for .NET, you can use any Java compiler to compile Java source code to JVM bytecode, then use ikvmc -target:exe myapp.jar to produce a .NET executable. You can even use .NET API's in your Java code using the included ikvmstub application.

Apache Harmony is a modular Java runtime with class libraries and associated tools. One of the goals of the Harmony project is to create a design modular enough so that parts of the VM can be implemented in different languages. This project started in 2005 and it is under active development.
The Xen hypervisor is a layer of software running directly on computer hardware replacing the operating system thereby allowing the computer hardware to run multiple guest operating systems concurrently. It suppors x86, x86-64, Itanium, Power PC, and ARM processors allow the Xen hypervisor to run on a wide variety of computing devices.
Ehcache is an open source, standards-based cache used to boost performance, offload the database and simplify scalability. Ehcache is robust, proven and full-featured and this has made it the most widely-used Java-based cache.
