11 Myths About Embedded Java

Back in 1995, when Java was first released, the Java virtual machine (JVM) used very simple algorithms internally to run code. All bytecodes were interpreted; thread synchronization was primitive, and memory management simplistic. With over 20 years of development, things have moved on so that the JVM now uses adaptive compilation and much more sophisticated thread management, with a variety of heap layouts and garbage-collection algorithms to choose from (including a pauseless collector in the Zing JVM from Azul ). Most code will now run as fast, if not faster in some cases (due to optimizations that can be applied by the JVM, but not the compiler) than natively compiled code.
