Are you interested in learning what a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is and what it does for your Java applications? This presentation will provide insight into the inner workings of a Java Virtual Machine and some drill down on what compilers and garbage collectors do, so that you don’t have to worry about it while programming your Java application. In particular, you will learn about common optimizations, well established garbage collection algorithms, and what the current biggest challenge with Java scalability is today.
Eva Andreasson has been involved with Java virtual machine technologies, SOA, Cloud, and other enterprise middleware solutions for the past 10 years. Joined the startup Appeal Virtual Solutions in 2001, as a developer of JRockit JVM, which later was acquired by BEA Systems. Eva holds two patents on Garbage Collection heuristics and algorithms, and pioneered Deterministic Garbage Collection which later became productized through JRockit Real Time. Eva has worked closely with Sun and Intel on many technical partnerships, as well as various integration projects of JRockit Product Group, Weblogic, and Coherence (post the Oracle acquisition in 2008). Most recently Eva joined Azul Systems in 2009, as the Product Manager for the new Zing Java Platform. Eva holds a Master of Science from the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, and a B.S with a Minor in Economics from the University of Stockholm
