An Unfair Advantage? G1 and OpenDS

Guest Author

I cannot catch up with all the backlog of
OpenDS news in a single post
so for now I'll just mention the
Availability of OpenDS 1.3 b2
and then I want to highlight the work related to Garbage First (G1) GC.


G1 is our most recent
Garbage Collecting
algorithm and it is intended to replace the current
CMS (see John's
Overview of JDK's GCs)
in JDK7.
G1 is sketched in
Alex's note;
more details in
or try it by yourself
in a recent OpenJDK.

The OpenDS team has high demands for performance and
responsivenes which makes them a good demanding customer
for the G1 team
(like CBOE!)
and, in a
recent visit,
the two worked together to improve performance - see
A good example of the advantage to Sun of leading both projects!
