In this paper, the authors propose a new approach to offer application-specific resource management on virtualized execution environments, such as those provided for C# or Java. The proposal is based on the cooperation between the user level and the system level to take the management decisions: the user level (the virtual machine) uses the whole knowledge that it has about the dynamic behavior of the application to take the management decisions and the system level performs the management decisions, if the runtime conditions of the system are suitable. They apply this idea to the memory management of Java scientific applications. They design and implement a cooperative page prefetching between the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the Operating System (OS).
