  1. Michael Haupt, Robert Hirschfeld, and Marcus Denker. Type feedback for bytecode interpreters. In Proceedings of the Second Workshop on Implementation, Compilation, Optimization of Object-Oriented Languages, Programs and Systems (ICOOOLPS'2007), ECOOP Workshop, p. 17—22, TU Berlin, 2007. 

    This position paper proposes the exploitation of type feedback mechanisms, or more precisely, polymorphic inline caches, for purely interpreting implementations of object-oriented programming languages. Using Squeak's virtual machine as an example, polymorphic inline caches are discussed as an alternative to global caching. An implementation proposal for polymorphic inline caches in the Squeak virtual machine is presented, and possible future applications for online optimization are outlined.
