Oracle is converging the HotSpot and Oracle JRockit JVMs to produce a "best-of-breed JVM". Internally, the project is sometimes referred to as the HotRockit project. This presentation will demonstrate some early results from the integration using Hotspot 7u4 and point out how the Hotspot implementation differs from the corresponding JRockit features. The remaining work will be outlined together with a rough release time table for the features.
