Fast Bytecodes for Funny Languages
Recorded at:

by Cliff Click on Dec 02, 2008 |

In this presentation from the JVM Languages Summit 2008, Cliff Click discusses how to optimize generated bytecode for running on the JVM. Click analyzes and reports on Java, Scala, Clojure, JRuby, JPC and JavaScript/Rhino and points out several places where each of them could increase their performance such as elimination of FixNums, escape analysis and best practices for testing bytecode.


With more than twenty-five years experience developing compilers, Cliff serves as Azul Systems' Chief JVM Architect. Cliff joined Azul in 2002 from Sun Microsystems where he was the architect and lead developer of the HotSpot Server Compiler, a technology that has delivered dramatic improvements in Java performance since its inception.

The 2008 JVM Language Summit is an open technical collaboration among language designers, compiler writers, tool builders, runtime engineers, and VM architects. The talks inform the audience, in detail, about the state of the art of language design and implementation on the JVM, and the present and future capabilities of the JVM itself.
