Generational Collector Organisation

by Gary Rampaud for Jikes RVM

The project's objective is to reduce the "en masse" promotion effect of the current generation collectors. To do so, the Hotspot's "Eden and Survivor" and the GHC's "Steps", young generations will be added as they postpone promotion of young generation objects to the mature generation.
