John R (aka ) alleged:
: Is there a better place to look than the Sun JVM book? How's the
: O'Reilly book in comparison?

The sun jvm book does leave alot to be desired. But still a good reference.
I found that the O'Reilly book, Sun JVM, and the class documentation to all
be necessary to fully understand how the loading and linking worked.
There are also errors and little annoying inconsistencies in each books.

There is another JVM book, which I haven't read by Bill Venners, "Inside
the Java Virtual Machine". I have heard that it is pretty good.
