Presentation: "What Java Application Isolation Can do for You"
Track: Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition
Time: Monday 14:15 - 15:15
Location: Conference Hall 2
Abstract: Java isolation refers to perfect separation of the Java state of two applications or application components, in contrast to the partial isolation currently afforded by classloaders or the perfect isolation of multiple JVM instances that requires transitions out of and back into Java. An overview of the isolation APIs being defined by JSR-121 for future J2SE and J2ME revisions will be presented along with code examples, use cases and selected details.
