Azul Product Manager Matt Schuetze's presentation on JVM memory details to the Philadelphia Java User Group.
This session dovetails with the March, 2014 PhillyJUG deep dive session topic focused on Java compiler code transformation and JVM runtime execution. That session exposes myths that Java is slow and Java uses too much memory. In this session we will take a deeper look at Java memory management. The dreaded Out of Memory (OOM) error is one problem. Garbage collector activity and spikes leading to long pauses is another. He covers the foundations of garbage collection and why historically Java gets a bad rap, even though GC provides a marvelous memory management paradigm.
