A garbage collection design and bakeoff in JMTk: An efficient extensible Java memory management toolkit

Blackburn, Stephen; Cheng, Perry; McKinley, Kathryn


In this paper, we describe the design, implementation, and evaluation of a new garbage collection framework called the Java Memory Management Toolkit (JMTk). The goals of JMTk are to provide an efficient, composable, extensible, and portable toolkit for quickly building and evaluating new and existing garbage collection algorithms. Our design clearly demarcates the external interface between the collector and the compiler for portability. For extensibility, JMTk provides a selection of...[Show more]
