Well, I am currently working on one for Java bytecode, and so are many
people at Sun, IBM, Microsoft, Borland and Apple are doing the same.
I am not sure that much current literature exists on the subject, at
least in part because everyone is busy writing them as opposed to
teaching others how to write them.

Of course, there are also "dynamic recompilers", used as emulators by
Digital and, more recently, Apple to run code from older architectures
on a newer processor. These have been around for a while, and, as far
I can see, are no different than "just in time compilers" that
everyone is so excited about now.

                                                      Hope this helps,
