    Thank you for posting this excellent presentation.

    There is one correction with regards to CMS collector:

    Only before JDK 6 the survivor spaces were disabled by default with the CMS collector. But in JDK 6, this is removed. The survivor spaces are now used by default for CMS, and their default size is also increased.
