This paper describes the scheme of thread migration in a language virtual machine LAOVM - lightweight application-oriented virtual machine. To maintain high portability and flexibility, thread migration is implemented at language level. To migrate process or thread in runtime in LAOVM, the following issues are addressed: (1) supporting kinds of applications implemented by different programming language; (2) enabling transparent process migration indifferent operating system; (3) implementing fine-grained mobility. Experimental results show that the downtime of thread migration is reasonably small, even the application runtime image is required for occupying massive memory blocks.
