  • Where Has the Java PermGen Gone?

    Prior to JDK8 class metadata and constants would live in an area called the “permanent generation”, contiguous with the Java heap. One problem was that If the class metadata size is beyond the allocated bounds your app would run out of memory. With the advent of JDK8 we no longer have PermGen. The space where it was held has now moved to native memory to an area known as the “Metaspace”.
