OrlandoJUG Reading List ::: from JavaSpecialists

Issue 282 - Biased locking a goner, but better things Loom ahead

Biased locking has made unnecessary mutexes cheap for over a decade. However, it is disabled by default in Java 15, slated for removal. From Java 15 onwards we should be more diligent to avoid synchronized in places where we do not need it.

Issue 281 - Puzzle 2: Is it garbage?

In our next puzzle, we up the ante a bit. We prevent GC during the test() method by storing a strong reference to all our Vectors. Cock and bull story, or are we struggling to identity our biases?

Issue 280 - Puzzle: What's up with Vector?

For today's puzzle, we are getting elements from Vector, sequentially and in parallel. But why is the performance so much worse in Java 15-ea+28?

Issue 279 - Upgrading ReadWriteLock

The Java ReentrantReadWriteLock can never ever upgrade a read lock to a write lock. Kotlin's extension function ReentrantReadWriteLock.write() cheats a bit by letting go of the read lock before upgrading, thus opening the door for race conditions. A better solution is StampedLock, which has a method to try to convert the lock to a write lock.

Issue 278 - Free Memory

How much memory was wasted when an additional boolean field was added to java.lang.String in Java 13? None at all. This article explains why.
