in thread "Obviously, You Will Need a Java Course..."

I found some links about Self including Sun's page. It seems that Self indeed affected Java developement. But I could not find any evidence that Sun's Java VM itself is primarily written in Self.

    I found a message in a thread and another message that may be of interest.

    I may have also misunderstood some of the lineage. Apparently, the Self people wrote a Java VM in Self, and found it to be faster than the Sun-produced Java VMs, so that became the basis of Hotspot, which is now at the core of the current Sun Java VM. Whether any of the Self Java VM code survived intact, I cannot tell.
