Java on Elbrus


Technical hardcore about OpenJDK for Elbrus CPU.

Elbrus is Russian VLIW-architecture processor with high security requirements. JVM is a complex dynamic system, which implies a certain freedom in the implementation and execution. These things are always in conflict with each other.

During the session Roman will tell about porting of OpenJDK, in particular of Hotspot virtual machine on this architecture. Digging into the guts of JVM, non-trivial solutions and many more will be present with an excess. There will also be the story of the "template" interpreter. In general, the talk will be interesting.
