Applying priorities to memory allocation
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: ACM SIGPLAN Notices ( MSP 2002 and ISMM 2002)
A novel approach of applying priorities to memory allocation is presented and it is shown how this can be used to enhance the robustness of real-time applications. The proposed mechanisms can also be used to increase performance of systems with automatic memory management by limiting the amount of garbage collection work. A way of introducing priorities for memory allocation in a Java system without making any changes to the syntax of the language is proposed and this has been implemented in an experimental Java virtual machine and verified in an automatic control application.
