The Missing Java Data Structures – Part3

In the third part of the article from Don Raab about missing Java data structures, he discusses primitive collection in EclipseCollections, the downside of boxing/unboxing, and the memory cost that it brings.

Java Object Layout (JOL)

If you read the article above from Don Raab, you saw that he used JOL to generate the memory footprint from Java and EclipseCollections. The project website defines JOL as:

JOL (Java Object Layout) is the tiny toolbox to analyze object layout in JVMs. These tools use Unsafe, JVMTI, and Serviceability Agent (SA) heavily to decode the actual object layout, footprint, and references. This makes JOL much more accurate than other tools relying on heap dumps, specification assumptions, etc.

Absolute Value

Tagir Valeev discusses the complexity involved in calculating an absolute value in Java.
