LJC Lightning Talk: Eclipse OpenJ9: Memory Diet for Your JVM Applications

Illustration for Eclipse OpenJ9: Memory Diet for Your JVM Applications

Talk

In the spring of 2020, the London Java Community (LJC) started hosting online lightning talks every other Friday. I was honored to give my first lightning talk there on May 1, 2020.

I discussed Eclipse OpenJ9, an alternate JVM. It uses less memory, especially in containers. Therefore OpenJ9 lowers the cost of running your Java applications.

The talk is on YouTube:

Slides

The slides are available as PDF on Github.

Source Code & Getting Started

I used two different applications to benchmark OpenJ9 against HotSpot. All the sources and more result details are in a Github repository. That repository also shows you how can start using OpenJ9 in your own projects, too!
