Decoding the JVM, Clojure and the module keyword


If you've never dared do more that up the maximum heap size on the JVM, but have wondered which methods in your app the JIT is compiling, or have been curious about seeing what happens to your app when you change garbage collectors, you should check it out Charlie Nutter's awesome crib-sheet on some of the HotSpot JVM dials and knobs that he's been using in the quest to further improve the performance of JRuby.

And speaking of other languages on the JVM, there was an interesting interview at InfoQ about Clojure with the author of a new book on this functional language with a special penchant for concurrency. Its a language that is not object oriented (is it the past, is it the future ?), but nevertheless holds many capabilities for modularity via namespaces and multimethods.

And speaking of modularity, Alex has posted two calls for comments in regard to the modularity work for the Java language for JDK 7 in the Java language, part of Project Jigsaw. First, the problems to address, and second a statement of the requirements of the project.

By dividing the living rooms into equal squares, it turns out that for most games, many of the squares contain unused toys that can be safely put away.http://www.watchgy.com/
