- Technical Itch: JVM guaranteed safepoints, Safepoints in HotSpot JVM, and Dynamic Deoptimization came up in conversation.
- javap.yawk.at – selckin says it’s basically “take a peek under the hood at the java bytecode for fun and profit.” Interesting site, though, it basically runs javap and procyon (a java decompiler) over submitted code and shows you the bytecode and associates it with the lines of java (or kotlin, or scala) that generated that bytecode.
- NetBeans Proposal suggests a migration of NetBeans (possibly a fork?) from Oracle to Apache, opening up NetBeans to Apache’s governance model and a wider community. Considering the noises Oracle’s made around NetBeans being deprecated (and therefore likely abandoned), this sounds like a great idea.
