Title:
Technical Introduction to WebSphere Real-Time
Stream:
Java SIG (1)
Speakers:
Mike Fulton
Abstract:
Predictable Performance for Java Applications. Java has grown beyond applets and servlets and is now being used for a huge range of applications. With WebSphere Real Time (WRT), you can now run applications that demand very high deterministic qualities of service without the need to restrict the general services or programming model that makes Java so appealing for application development. This presentation will discuss the significant enhancements made to the J9 Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and TR Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler to provide the infrastructure for the WRT product, as well as discussing the real-time class libraries provided in our RTSJ (JSR #1) conformant implementation. It will introduce our incremental, deterministic garbage collector called Metronome. Finally, we will talk about our work in enabling our middleware to run on this deterministic environment.
Bio:

Mike Fulton:

Mike Fulton graduated from Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada in 1989 with a degree in Computer Science, specializing in Compiler Technology. After graduation, he moved to Toronto to work for the IBM Toronto Lab soon after as a tester of the C compiler and runtime for MVS and VM/CMS. Mike has worked in the compiler area for the past 18 years in many technical roles including testing, code development, documentation, service, architecture and performance analysis. The products he has worked on range across C, C++, Java, parser technology, debuggers, profilers and for the last several years, compiler optimization for the Just In Time (JIT) Java compilation. In 2005, Mike turned his focus to developing Real-Time Java, although he continues to be involved in other technology. Mike decided that he missed the rain, and has moved back to a small city near Vancouver called Maple Ridge in 1999, but still works for the Toronto Lab - now that's telecommuting!
