Azul Systems Launches Falcon, a New Just-in-Time Compiler for Java, Based on LLVM

by Charles Humble Follow 470 Followers , Victor Grazi Follow 13 Followers on  May 02, 2017 1

Azul Systems has today announced the immediate availability of Zing 17.03, with full support for Azul’s new Falcon just-in-time (JIT) compiler based on LLVM and designed to replace the C2 compiler used in prior versions of Zing, as well as in Oracle HotSpot and OpenJDK. Falcon is the first new production JIT compiler available for Java SE since C2 was introduced at JavaOne in 1997.

The Last Frontier in Java Performance: Remove the Garbage Collector

by Abraham Marín Pérez Follow 7 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.

LLD, LLVM’s New Linker, Coming to LLVM 4

by Sergio De Simone Follow 7 Followers on  Feb 21, 2017

LLD, which touts great performance improvements over GCC ld, will be included in LLVM 4 rc1 and enabled by default. Although the new linker is already able to build a running FreeBSD/amd64 base system, its inclusion in LLVM is still experimental and could be set back in rc2 if it causes problems.

MIT Extended LLVM IR to Enable Better Optimization of Parallel Programs

by Sergio De Simone Follow 7 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 7 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.

Using Cloud Sandboxes to “Shift Left” Testing within Production-Like Environments

by Daniel Bryant Follow 377 Followers on  Oct 16, 2016

InfoQ recently sat down with Joan Wrabetz, CTO at Quali, and discussed the role ‘cloud sandboxes’ can take within the modern software development lifecycle (SDLC). Cloud sandboxes allow a user to create and publish replicas of infrastructure and application configurations for on-demand usage. The primary use cases for cloud sandboxes include development and quality assurance testing.
