Oracle is converging the HotSpot and JRockit JVMs to produce a "best of breed JVM". Internally the project is sometimes referred to as the HotRockit project. There is already a large influx of ideas and solutions provided by the JRockit JVM into the Open JDK.Examples of improvements include:
- Better monitoring and profiling
- Improved performance
- Better ergonomics
This talk will discuss what to expect from the converged JVM over the next two years, and how this will benefit the Eclipse community.
