Oracle JRockit: The Definitive Guide
Copyright © 2010 Packt Publishing

Just like the title establish, this is the definitive guide of JRockit, including the last features of version R28.

It starts with the canonical knowledge to work and understand the JVM, showing details from the most basic until the advanced topics. Describing how and why certain features were made, how it was improved and plus several Best Practices lists to take the best of the suite of tools bundle with JRockit.

The book is wisely divided in two parts, the first is about JVM and the second part is regarding to JRockit Mission Control. Which is a powerful set to dissect JRockit Beauvoir to find out memory leaks, performance, bottlenecks, etc.

It gives an extended explanation of the parameters to take better of this tools suite with a low overhead, many of the areas referred can't be found somewhere else in such deeply detail form.

Everything in only one compendium of information done by the same creators of JRockit.
