Java and Containers: What's there to think about? | DevNation Tech Talk
Java poses some interesting challenges when running inside of a container. Is the default memory chosen based on the container limits or actual limits of the box? What does it mean to give a JVM a partial share of a processor? Does it ever make sense to run a parallel garbage collector on a single processor container? What are the issues with checkpointing a JVM that you don't have when checkpointing a more generic Linux container? Is GraalVM the right choice for my application? We'll explore these issues and more.
