Java is widely applied in mobile devices and network applications due to its object-oriented features and corresponding advantages such as security, robustness, platform independence. However, almost all the current Java processors do not provide enough hardware support on object-oriented programming so that the object-oriented related operations are performed by software traps or microcode. Their performance of executing Java program is not well, especially for memory-constraint mobile devices. In this paper, a Java processor architecture named jHISC is proposed, which implements the features of object-oriented programming by hardware directly and executes the object-oriented instructions much faster
