According to the present invention, a dynamic compiler instantiates a predefined virtual machine interface, not the architectural specification for a full machine. In another implementation, the dynamic compiler instantiates a machine and implements the hypervisor interface. This approach can increase performance by exploiting information made available by the operating systen to the virtual machine or hypervisor.
