Azul Systems (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime innovation, today announced that CTO and co-founder Gil Tene will present and host a workshop during the JVM Language Summit from 28-30 July, 2014. Designed as an open technical collaboration among language designers, compiler writers, tool builders, runtime engineers, and VM architects, the Summit will be held at Oracle’s Santa Clara campus.
The Summit is a series of technical presentations and conversations about programming languages and the JVM, with talks by numerous visiting language experts, OpenJDK engineers, and other Java luminaries.
Mr. Tene’s presentation on ‘StructuredArray and ObjectLayout’ will describe a new Java package that can deliver C-like performance for memory layout and access speed using normal Java objects. Designed to allow future JVMs to better optimize memory layout and access speed without making changes to the Java language itself, the ObjectLayout package expresses specifically useful memory layout and related execution semantics that can be leveraged by JVMs to provide optimized behaviors that are not directly expressible in the Java language. Tene’s new workshop on ‘StructuredArray – Contained Objects in the Heap’ will examine the key implementation options for deriving speed and memory layout benefits of ObjectLayout’s StructuredArray constructs in future JVM versions, including simple options for adding contained object layout capability to the various existing Garbage Collection mechanisms used by various JVMs.
