Overview

Java is an exciting new object-oriented technology. Hardware for supporting objects and other features of Java such as multithreading, dynamic linking and loading is the focus of this book. The impact of Java's features on micro-architectural resources and issues in the design of Java-specific architectures are interesting topics that require the immediate attention of the research community. While Java has become an important part of desktop applications, it is now being used widely in high-end server markets, and will soon be widespread in low-end embedded computing.

Java Microarchitectures contains a collection of papers providing a snapshot of the state of the art in hardware support for Java. The book covers the behavior of Java applications, embedded processors for Java, memory system design, and high-performance single-chip architectures designed to execute Java applications efficiently.

Editorial Reviews

Explores the design of hardware for supporting objects and other features of Java, and the impact of Java on microarchitectural resources. The 11 papers address architectural support for Java execution in embedded environments, memory systems, and high- performance single-chip multiprocessors. Some of the topics are microarchitectural techniques for improving the performance of Java applications executed on embedded Java processors, the memory behavior of Java workloads, concurrent garbage collection using hardware-assisted profiling, and the Java machine and integrated circuit architecture (JAMAICA).
