do You consider implementing Garbage-First Garbage Collector http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/tech/g1-intro-jsp-135488.html (adjusted to your JVM memory management specifics) into Your JDK7?

Re: Garbage-First Garbage Collector?2010-12-09T16:49:23Z in response to PetrHThanks for the question.
IBM is investing heavily in improving the memory management / GC capabilities in our JVM and while we will not be providing G1, we are continuing to improve the IBM J9 garbage collection technology in substantial ways. We look forward to showing some of those results in future beta releases.

Re: Garbage-First Garbage Collector?2011-09-21T23:01:55Z in response to TrentGray-DonaldCongratulations for the release in first place.
I noticed that there's a new balanced GC policy available that (at least on the first look) comes pretty close to the G1GC. So going to check this one out a bit soon ...
Also, I noticed ( http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/techjournal/1108_sciampacone/1108_sciampacone.html ) that it's even available in WAS 8.0 which is Java 6.0 based. However when I looked into the 6.0 diagnostics guide I couldn't find anything related.
Is it WAS 8.0 thing only and thus not going to be available in Your "generic" Java 6.0 releases, or is there any chance to see it there as well?

Re: Garbage-First Garbage Collector?2011-12-19T11:36:59Z in response to indeanHi:
Unfortunately not, the -Xgcpolicy:balanced option is only available in WebSphere Application Server v8 and Java 7.
Dependent on what your application is, we've seen (very) good results in Java 6/WAS v7 running -Xgcpolicy:gencon for large Java heaps.
