Introduction to JVM Internals

May 10, 2017


Abstract

In this session we’ll explore what a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) does and how it works. We’ll look at the abstract model of a JVM, as described by the Java Virtual Machine Specification and then look at a few implementation approaches and optimizations. We’ll also take a look at Garbage Collection (GC) algorithms and the impacts they have on Java applications. Knowing how the JVM works can help you write cleaner, faster code.

Presented by Paul Nauman

Paul is a Principal Sales Engineer at Azul Systems. He was previously a member of the JVM Sustaining Engineering organization at Oracle Corp. Paul has also worked for Sun Microsystems, Ameritech and Bell Laboratories. Paul has an extensive background in system-level programming in telecommunications and financial services.
