Subject: [djug] Meeting next Wednesday, 6/9 Date: Wed, 2 Jun 1999 18:26:14 -0700 (PDT) From: Charles Bradley <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just a reminder about our meeting next Monday. The topic is Java and Java VM Performance. Our speakers will be from IBM. I've given the web updates to Corey, so that should be updated later in the week. For now, I've attached the details below. cb Java Performance IBM Recently published performance data indicates that IBM provides one of the highest performing Java Virtual Machines(JIT) (see SPECJAVA, JavaWorld, InfoWorld). This talk will summarize current performance results(both published and non-published) and discuss a number of the IBM changes that were made to obtain these results. Technical enhancements to Garbage Collection, Object Allocation, Monitors, and JITs will be discussed. Current JAVA performance inhibitors and liabilities will be detailed. The talk will also be a good time to discuss areas where users believe JAVA performance should be improved. Speakers: Mr. Uwe Zimmerman wil be our speaker. Mr. Zimmerman works for IBM Network Computing Solutions in Austin, Texas. His current work is focused on the performance of Java and e-business systems.
