Presentation: A Preemptive User-level Thread System in an JVM for the Server (JRockit).

JRockit is a server-side JVM, built from the ground up to handle server specific features. One of JRockit's unique technical features is its threading system (ThinThreads). A user-level, preemptive, threading system designed to support the Java-thread model as efficiently as possible. This talk will give some background on the Java thread model and the architecture of JRockit.
The talk will focus on the ThinThread-system and show some of the advantages of having a user-level threading system within the JVM. Moreover the talk will discuss the difficulties in implementing the ThinThreads.

Tuesday 13:00 - 14:00
