Not only does the Dalvik
VM provide an efficient bytecode interpreter, it also lets programmers create portable code.
Understand garbage collection (GC) log messages for the Dalvik
Virtual Machine, as shown in the following example and definition:
Myriad s Alien Dalvik
runtime will enable Jolla smartphone users to access hundreds of thousands of apps, including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Skype, Viber and WeChat, as well as a variety of games, productivity apps and music apps.
In the Dalvik
runtime, there used to be two garbage collection pauses, while ART reduces that to one, performing a full cycle only when the device is locked.
A key take-away from the emergence of 64-bit devices is that pure Java apps will run unchanged on the 32-bit Dalvik
runtime and the 64-bit ART regardless of whether it's on a device built with ARM or IA.

In fact even on Android phones, applications run on a virtual machine called Dalvik
that interprets Android applications that have been compiled to bytecode.
