Hiya. I've have worked on the past on trying to get JVM bytecodes
working inside Parrot, but mostly that hasn't got very far due to lack
of free time or motivation.

It's very easy to get simple stuff working due to the low number of
JVM bytecodes. You can emulate iinc quite easily ;-) However, it's
getting the classes and object system to work which is a little

This may help:

In the past couple of weeks I've been wondering whether a hybrid
scheme a la Inline::Java where we dispatch stuff to a real JVM may be
a faster approach to get running.

Why, what exactly did you have in mind?
