Oil and Water? High Performance Garbage Collection in Javq with MMTk

Blackburn, Stephen; Cheng, Perry; McKinley, Kathryn


Increasingly popular languages such as Java and C# require efficient garbage collection. This paper presents the design, implementation, and evaluation of MMTk, a Memory Management Toolkit for and in Java. MMTk is an efficient, composable, extensible, and portable framework for building garbage collectors. MMTk uses design patterns and compiler cooperation to combine modularity and efficiency. The resulting system is more robust, easier to maintain, and has fewer defects than monolithic...[Show more]
