The Last Frontier in Java Performance: Remove the Garbage Collector

by Abraham Marín Pérez Follow 6 Followers on  Mar 01, 2017 13

A new JEP draft has been filed to create a no-op garbage collector: a GC that doesn't actually reclaim memory. This is aimed at aiding JVM implementers and researches and, to a lesser extent, ultra-performant applications that generate little to no garbage. If the JEP goes ahead, the new GC would be available together with the existing ones, and would have no effect unless explicitly activated.

MIT Extended LLVM IR to Enable Better Optimization of Parallel Programs

by Sergio De Simone Follow 5 Followers on  Feb 06, 2017

Researchers at MIT have been working on a fork of LLVM to explore a new approach to optimizing parallel code by embedding fork-join parallelism directly into the compiler’s intermediate representation (IR). This, the researchers maintain, makes it possible to leverage most of the IR-level serial optimizations for parallel programs.

Java 9 Enters First Bug Fixing Round

by Abraham Marín Pérez Follow 6 Followers on  Jan 31, 2017 4

Java 9 is now officially feature complete, meaning the first bug-fixing phase has started. HTTP/2 Client didn't make it on time for the deadline and has been downgraded to an incubating feature. Since the objective now is to prepare Java 9 for general availability in July, it is very unlikely that any new JEP will be added at this point.
