No file locking is not implemented in either library yet.
(Patches welcome!)

I cheated. When you define the system property
The Eclipse 3.0 startup code doesn't try to get a real lock.

Besides that issue I only remember two things missing from our library
regexp compile on a String and a unsupported format symbol
in java.text. But both were not really fatal, just annoying.

Hope to hear a success story about JRVM and Eclipse 3.0 soon!
(Kaffe is also able to run it now with a couple of small patches.)
