An Efficient Mark & Sweep Concurrent Snapshot-Based And On The Fly Sliding-Views based Garbage Collectors For Jikes RVM

by Shahar for Jikes RVM

The Project contains the following steps : 1) Revisit the design of MMtk to faciliate support for concurrent and on the fly algorithms. 2) Implementing an Efficient Mark & Sweep Garbage Collector based on the snapshot Mechanism. 3) Implement a mark & sweep on the fly collector, based on the sliding views mechanism.
