Towards a Full Multiple-Inheritance Virtual Machine


Late binding and subtyping create run-time overhead for object-oriented languages, especially in the context of both multiple inheritance and dynamic loading, for instance for JAVA interfaces. It is, however, generally agreed that the efficiency of JAVA and .NET systems comes from the fact that, in these languages, classes are in single inheritance. In this paper, we present the abstract architecture of a virtual machine for unrestricted multiple-inheritance, which should provide the same runtime efficiency as .JAVA and .NET.
