What is Java written in?

What language is Sun’s JVM written in?

Answer

Sun actually has multiple JVMs. The HotSpot JVM is written largely in C++, because HotSpot is heavily based on the Animorphic Smalltalk VM which is written in C++.

More interesting than HotSpot is IMHO the Maxine Research VM, which is written (almost) completely in Java.
