A Java processor is the implementation of the Java virtual machine (JVM) in hardware. In other words, the Java bytecode that makes up the instruction set of the abstract machine becomes the instruction set of a concrete machine. These are the most popular form of a high-level language computer architecture today.


There are many Java processors available, including:
