IS JRockit the way to modify Java or JVM for high speed quant development and HFT platform?
After looking for how people are ‘optimizing’ Java and the JVM, it sounds like JRockit was a standard JVM option. I also heard IBM had a custom JVM as well. Some info sounds like Jrockit could be used from Oracle which is ‘open source’ as well. It sounds like it is part of the standard WebLogic app server product.
Anybody want to set the records straight on this thought? Also, it sounds like you can use standard Java coding techniques out of out of box JVM to ‘optimize’ as well.
I am nore sure if these methods are still good enough to use for a HFT platform as compared to C++ or C. Anyone want to convince the general community on this? This is especially true with Java’s garbage collector.
