- From r/java: Externalizor says that it is a library for “efficient (fast and small) Java serialization using
Externalizable interface.” No analysis provided of the potential security risks, and there’s no description of the format – but one nice thing about
Externalizable is that the library allows users to leverage the standard Java serialization. (No comment on whether that is an actual good thing or not.)
- User yawkat made a reference to JITWatch, a tool for understanding the behavior of the Java HotSpot Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler during the execution of your program. It’s not exactly trivial to use (you may have to use a debugging version of the JVM – see the instructions) but the information can be really cool.
