I am reading an old copy of Inside the Java Virtual Machine by Venners 1999 in preparation for work on my dissertation concerning optimizations at the Java bytecode level.

My question is where is the more up to date info on the JVM that is in a more readable form than the RAW spec? Can anyone help?

Hi,
On Sun's website you can find "The Java(tm) Virtual Machine Specification": http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jvms/
which I find quite "readable". There's also lots of other docs here: http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/

If you hadn't already found these, I hope they are useful to you.
Cheers,
Lucas
