ITT: Discussion GCs like it's 1989.
I have worked with Java since it was released in the mid-1990's
You are a re[dacted]. You know that JVM implementations have several types of GC and there are quite a few GCs for specialized applications?
> Java's mark/sweep methods are inherently non-deterministic
The only deterministic methods when GCing are those that have strictly pre-planned and limited memory usage. Good luck finding those outside of aerospace applications.
> I had finished a deterministic reference-counted garbage collector which after 20+ years is still running many major semiconductor
Yeah, I did that as a student, too. And then circular data structures showed up.
> 10+ million lines of code with no deletes and no memory leaks
Do you even know what you are talking about.
> go find someone else who has a taste for self-flagillation...
I hope somebody spell-checked your IEEE paper for you.
