Not an original concept by Microsoft or Sun:

- Ken Bowles' UCSD P-System of the late 1970s used a virtual machine and
intermediate code called p-code for portability

- About 30 years ago, developers built a portable DBMS using a similar
concept, except there was no compiler that emitted intermediate code. That
was the era when hard-core developers used assembly language. They coded
directly in virtual machine opcodes called DMOPs (Data Management
OPerators), which were executed by a DMOPS interpreter.
