Java 7 aims to improve support for dynamic languages through JSR 292. InfoQ takes a detailed look at the problems JSR 292 solves, and talks to JRuby lead Charles Nutter about JSR 292 in practice.
This article explains the impact memory barriers, or fences, have on the determinism of multi-threaded programs. 2
This article presents one developer's approach to dealing with the "fiendishly hard" OSGi issue of service dynamics. The basic problem is described and two different solutions are proposed. 2
One of the most exciting things in Java right now is the work being done to get other programming languages onto the JVM. If you want to try something very different from Java, Lisp is a great option. 12
Jeroen Borgers examines if biased locking, lock coarsening, lock elision by escape analysis and adaptive spin locking techniques in the latest JVMs actually work in highly-concurrent apps. 3

Simon Ritter explains the vision and capabilities of the Real-Time Java specification (RTSJ), which will bring guaranteed response times regardless of GC. 3
Finding performance bottlenecks can be a difficult task and it can get more difficult as our applications grow in size. The Box is a methodology tool that focuses us efforts to improve performance. 6
Orion Letizi goes in-depth on OpenTerracotta, an open-source JVM-level clustering solution that can cluster single-jvm apps with no code changes. 10
Using both the JVM and the CLR inside the same operating system process is a relatively trivial matter, since any process is capable of loading just about any shared library. Ted Neward shows how. 2
