Optimizing Java

Video Description

In this Optimizing Java training course, expert author Doug Hawkins will teach you how to optimize your Java code with HotSpot. This course is designed for users that already have experience with Java.

You will start by learning about the anatomy of a compiler, then jump into Java bytecode. From there, Doug will teach you about the HotSpot execution lifestyle, including general VM tricks, triggering the JIT, and tiered compilation. This video tutorial also covers JITs, such as peephole and local optimizations, global optimizations, and concurrency implications. Finally, you will learn about speculative optimizations, including uncommon traps and de-virtualization.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will have learned how to optimize your Java code with HotSpot.
