Patent Number: 6,338,160

Title: Constant pool reference resolution method

Abstract: An implementation of Java is disclosed in which references to the constant pool are implemented by using a Data Resolution Field within the constant pool entry. The Data Resolution Field acts as an index to a jump table to jump to resolve the reference or to perform the bytecode instruction. When the reference is resolved, the contents of the Data Resolution Field in the constant pool entry are modified so that the next time the bytecode is run, the resolution steps need not be done.
