End-to-End Java Performance Optimization: Engineering Techniques and Micro-benchmarking with JMH


Welcome to a pivotal stage in our journey through Java Virtual Machine (JVM) performance engineering. This chapter marks a significant transition, where we move from understanding the historical context and foundational structures of Java to applying this knowledge to optimize performance. This sets the stage for our upcoming in-depth exploration of performance optimization in the OpenJDK HotSpot JVM.

Together, we’ve traced the evolution of Java, its type system, and the JVM, witnessing Java’s transition from a monolithic structure to a modular one. Now, we’re poised to apply these concepts to the vital task of performance ...
