Troubleshooting Java Technology during Tech Days in Sydney
By Janice J. Heiss on Oct 24, 2008
To brush up on your Java SE 6
troubleshooting skills, please take a look at my article,
based on a Tech Days presentation by Java technology evangelist Chuk-Munn Lee, given in Sydney, Australia, in March 2008. It was a lively scene with Aussies asking sharp questions in their inimitable style. Chuk is no stranger to the Australian developer culture, having graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, where his favorite subject was compiler theory. He seemed to connect immediately and spiced his talk with witticisms about the conflicts between old and young generations.
Part of the fun of turning his session
into an article is the way that memories of Australia come rushing
back to me. I live in San Francisco, a beautiful city with impressive
people, but Sydney in my opinion is even more beautiful and the
people are warm, energetic, fun loving and so very friendly.
The article covers Java SE 6 troubleshooting updates; memory management; tools like jps, jinfo, jstat, JConsole and Java VisualVM; and more.
Based in Singapore, Lee works frequently with individual developers and software vendors, helping them to architect and prototype both their server and desktop-based Java applications. He's a sharp guy with a lot of experience. I interviewed him 3 years ago and found him fun-loving and playful. He's an avid gamer and, in 2005, was working on some game projects in his spare time -- I don't know whatever became of them.
