The JVM. It inspires either respect or fear and hatred. Gather a group of sysadmins together and ask them about the JVM, and you’ll hear a tirade of stories about memory leaks, tuning nightmares, stability, complex toolchains, and incomprehensible output. Talk to developers and long-time users of the JVM, and you’ll see a quiet reverence for a powerful, performant, and scalable platform that just works. So why the dichotomy? James Turnbull explores why the JVM inspires such disdain and hatred, taking a potted look at the good, bad, and ugly of the JVM’s history and development, even taking a detour into Java itself. Along the way, James debunks the myths around the JVM (and Java itself) as he walks you through modern Java and the modern JVM—covering tuning, logging, metrics, and deployment—and introduces you to available tools that make managing and running the JVM easy and simple. You’ll leave with a healthy respect for the JVM—or at least a more nuanced understanding of it.
