JavaOne 2011–Sao Paulo

I will be presenting the following two sessions at Java One in Brazil in December:

Wednesday, December 7
Time Room Title Abstract Type
11:15 – 13:15
Mezannine: Room 1 Production-Time Problem Solving

This tutorial looks at some common problems and pitfalls in Java applications. It focuses on noninvasive profiling and diagnostics of running production systems. Problems tackled:

  • Excessive GC
  • Finding hotspots and optimizing them
  • Optimizing the choice of data structures
  • Synchronization problems
  • Finding out where exceptions are thrown
  • Finding memory leaks
  • The presentation demonstrates all problems and solves them, running both the bad-behaving applications and the tools to analyze them from within the Eclipse Java IDE with the upcoming Oracle JRockit Mission Control Release 4.1.

    12:30 – 13:30 Exposition Hall: Auditorium 6 HotRockit: What to Expect from Oracle’s Converged JVM 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 discusses what to expect from the converged JVM over the next two years and how this will benefit the Java community.

    WordFeud Word Generator

    My friend complained that his app for generating Swedish words did not work with Swedish characters. I complained that he should not be using such an app to begin with, but was challenged into whipping together this:

    I don’t recommend using this, as it really is cheating. If you are using this, let the friend you are playing with know! It really changes the character of the game to a pure strategy game.
