This keeps changing, so no such page has been produced. What aspects
of the JVMs would you most like to know about? Here are the ones I know
quite good. Latest cvs is a lot better than the version packaged for
still quite immature, but has an excellent team behind it. Debian
packages get updated regularly and upstream are very helpful.
Supports native compilation. I've had a few problems with gij, but some
people think it's the best. Gets better at each release.
IBM - not available in Debian (non-free?)
Blackdown, Sun Excellent, but non-free.
