JITWatch live coding session.

Discussion and examples of:

  • Escape Analysis
  • heap elimination
  • lock elision and coarsening
  • inlining.


I recommend running them in the JITWatch sandbox.


Determine the limitations of heap elimination by asking questions on hotspot-compiler-dev or inspecting OpenJDK source. Write up as a blog post on writing heap-elimination-friendly code.
