  • Java on Container Like A Pro
    par Vivek Thakur le 12 septembre 2019 à 18 h 47 min

    JVM in containers Modern day software systems are moving towards containers, and there are few important factors to understand, before we move our Java / JVM based applications on containers and these factors are raising questions if Java is really good for containers? so lets see how java is making progress and what is there for containers. Suppose, Our environment has deployed 10 instances of an application into a container and all the sudden the application starts throttling and not achieving the same performance as we have seen on our development environment. What exactly has happened? In order to allow multiple containers to run isolated side-by-side, we have specified it to be limited to one cpu (or the equivalent ratio in CPU shares). Unfortunately, the JVM will see the overall number of cores on that node (64) and use that value to initialize the number of default threads we have seen earlier. As started 10 instances, we end up with: 10 * 64 Jit Compiler Threads 10 * 64 Garbage Collection threads 10 * 64 …. And so on… Moreover, our application, being limited in the number of CPU cycles it can use, is mostly dealing with switching between different threads and does cannot get any actual work done. All the sudden the promise of containers, “Package once, run anywhere’ seem violated. Before JDK 8.0_131, it gets the core count resources from sysconf. That means that whenever we run it in a container, we are going to get the total number of processor available on the system, or in case of virtual machines: virtual system. The same is true for default memory limits: the JVM will look at the host overall memory and use that for setting its defaults. We can say that the JVM ignoring cgroups and that cause problems as we have seen above. Unfortunately, there is no CPU or memory namespace (also, namespaces usually have a slightly different goal), so a simple less /proc/meminfo from inside the container will still show us the overall memory on the host. We can say that the JVM ignoring cgroups and that cause problems as we have seen above. Java 8.0_131 onwards on containers! Java now supports Docker CPU and memory limits. Let us look at what “support” actually means. Please look into the below Jira which shows the list of improvement in java for Containers. Improve Docker container detection and resource configuration usage These changes are available in 8u192. [It is expect to release in Oct 2018]   The JVM can recognize the memory and CPU configurations of the container it is running in. For instance, if the Docker container has configured to run with 1024m of memory, the JVM can now detect that, and can in turn configure its java heap and the sizes of its other memory pools accordingly. Therefore, to have a smaller footprint of your Docker instance, all you have to do is to control the size of that container instance. The same applies for the CPU configuration as well. You focus on configuring the number of CPUs that you would like the container instance to use, and the JVM running inside it will be able to detect that configuration, and limit its CPU use to that configuration. Memory The JVM will now consider cgroups memory limits if the following flags are specified:      -XX:+UseCGroupMemoryLimitForHeap      -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions      In that case, the Max Heap space will be automatically (if not overwritten) be set to the limit specified by the cgroup. As we discussed earlier, the JVM is using memory besides the Heap, so this will not      prevent user from the OOM killer removing their containers. However, especially giving that the garbage collector will become more aggressive as the Heap fills up, this is already a great improvement. CPU      The JVM will automatically detect cpusets and if set use the number of CPUs specified for initializing the default values discussed earlier. Unfortunately, most users (and especially container orchestrators such as DC/OS) use CPU shares as the default CPU isolation. Moreover, with CPU shares you will still end up with the incorrect value for      default parameters. So what can we do?      We should consider manually overwriting the default parameter     (e.g., at least XMX for memory and XX:ParallelGCThreads, XX:ConcGCThreads for CPU) according to your specific cgroup limits. Considering Non-Heap Memory in Java The JVM memory consists the following segments: Heap Memory Non-Heap Memory, which is used by Java to store loaded classes and other meta-data JVM code itself, JVM internal structures, loaded profiler agent code and data, etc. The JVM has memory other than the heap, referred to as non-heap memory. It has created at the JVM startup and stores per-class structures such as runtime constant pool, field and method data, and the code for methods and constructors, as well as interned Strings. In previous versions of Java (before 1.8), JVM specifies a default space of 64 MB for permgen space, and this could be modified according to need of requires more than 64 MB. In Java 8, PermGen has been renamed to Metaspace - with some subtle differences. It is important to note that Metaspace has an unlimited default maximum size (-XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=?MB). On the contrary, PermGen from Java 7 and earlier has a default maximum size of 64 MB on 32-bit JVM and 82 MB on the 64-bit version. Of course, these are not the same as the initial sizes. Java 7 and earlier starts with something around 12-21 MB of the initial PermGen space. However, MetaSize can be set but there was a bug in the java that specified metaspacesize was not committing.  Ref Now after setting heap and MetaSpaceSize, what options do we have? There is no way that we can limit the native memory usage of an application. After allocating java heap and Metaspace, whatever left in the system memory, a java application is free to use that for other native allocations. We can limit that by limiting the total memory available to the container itself, by configuring the total memory of the container. However, if our application is extensively using Direct memory buffers (native allocations), we can control the maximum size of those by using the JVM option MaxDirectMemorySize, and that in turn will control the size of native allocations. We can say that the JVM ignoring cgroups and that cause problems as we have seen above. Unfortunately, there is no CPU or memory namespace (also, namespaces usually have a slightly different goal), so a simple less /proc/meminfo from inside the container will still show us the overall memory on the host.

  • Java and the New Duke Personality
    par Sharat Chander le 12 septembre 2019 à 3 h 30 min

    For 24+ years, Java technology has advanced the world we interact with every day.  With Oracle’s stewardship, Java technology continues to offer developers innovative functionality to build out the next generation of applications that bring utility to us, both personally and professionally. And during the history of Java, it’s been represented by the highly recognized Duke personality.  Back in the early days of Java development, Sun Microsystems’ Green Project team created its first working demo—an interactive handheld home entertainment controller called the Star7. At the heart of the animated touch-screen user interface was a cartoon character named Duke. The jumping, cartwheeling Duke was created by one of the team’s graphic artists, Joe Palrang. Joe went on to work on popular animated movies such as Shrek, Over the Hedge, and Flushed Away. Duke was designed to represent a “software agent” that performed tasks for the user. Duke was the interactive host that enabled a new type of user interface that went beyond the buttons, mice, and pop-up menus of the desktop computing world. Duke was instantly embraced. In fact, at about the same time Java was first introduced and the first Java cup logo was commissioned, Duke became the official mascot of Java technology. In 2006, Duke was officially “open sourced” under a BSD license. Developers and designers were encouraged to play around with Duke and for the first time had access to Duke’s graphical specifications through a project. Efforts around Duke are now hosted as “Project Duke” at OpenJDK. At Oracle, we celebrate Duke, too. A living, life-size Duke was a popular feature at every JavaOne developer conference, and now at Oracle’s flagship developer event…Oracle Code One. This year, Oracle is releasing a new Duke personality that embodies the open and innovative spirit and how Java continues to propel itself into the future. Please help us welcome Cloud Surfer Duke!

  • Java Magazine on Containers
    par Yolande Poirier le 12 juin 2019 à 14 h 06 min

    By Java Magazine Editor Andrew Binstock In our previous issue, we explored the use of lightweight frameworks— Javalin, Micronaut, and Helidon—to create microservices, which typically are deployed in the cloud. In that issue’s article on Helidon, we also showed how to package a service into a Docker container for deployment. In this issue, we continue the theme by examining how to build apps with containers in mind and how to deploy containers. For straight Java apps, the jlink and jdeps tools are excellent solutions for creating modularized, small, self-contained apps. We discuss how to use those tools on page 25. If very fast startup time is a concern, then consider the GraalVM platform. It is written in Java but compiles Java code to an executable format. We’ve discussed GraalVM in past issues, but this article focuses on the latest features and their use in creating small executables with native-code startup speed. Finally, if you’re straddling the Dev and Ops sides of DevOps, you surely have seen that most containers are managed with the open source Kubernetes platform. In our lead feature, we give you a full introduction to Kubernetes and all the information you need to start working with managing your containerized apps. In addition, we explore what’s new in the recent release of Java 12, and we examine a major upgrade to Java Card, which in all senses is the very smallest container for a Java app. In addition, we have our usual quiz and our events calendar. Finally, future issues of this magazine will look materially different from what you’re used to. Please see the editorial in this issue for details […]

  • Java Magazine on Lightweight Frameworks
    par Yolande Poirier le 5 mars 2019 à 15 h 26 min

    By Java Magazine Editor Andrew Binstock  Running Fast and Light Without All the Baggage The emergence of microservices as the new architecture for applications has led to a fundamental change in the way we use frameworks. Previously, frameworks offered an omnibus scaffolding that handled most needs of monolithic applications. But as microservices have gained traction, applications now consist of orchestrated containers, each performing a single service. As such, those services require far less scaffolding—favoring instead lightweight frameworks that provide basic connectivity and then get out of the way. In this issue, we examine three leading frameworks for microservices: Javalin (page 13), which is a very lightweight, unopinionated Kotlin-based web framework; Micronaut (page 23), which handles all feature injection at compile time and so loads extremely fast; and Helidon (page 34), which is a cloud native framework that generates a pure Java SE JAR ile that can be run as a service or a complete app. Helidon comes in two flavors: a minimal framework and a slightly heftier one for developers wanting additional services.  In addition to these articles, we continue with the final installment of our series on Java design patterns—this time covering the Proxy pattern (page 53), with practical examples and coverage of the rarely discussed dynamic proxy feature in a little-used corner of the Java language. Ben Evans examines a common optimization in VMs, loop unrolling (page 62), and explains the subtle reason why loops on the JVM will execute more slowly if they’re indexed by longs rather than ints.  And of course we have our quiz—somewhat expanded for this issue (page 81)—and our book review (page 7).&nbs […]

  • Using JShell with NetBeans
    par Yolande Poirier le 17 janvier 2019 à 4 h 27 min

    By Guess Blogger Deepak Vohra  Java Shell (or JShell) is a new tool introduced in Java 9 for running standalone code snippets.  JShell in NetBeans is explored in six articles. The first article introduces JShell with NetBeans including how to access the JShell.  JShell-only commands such as /list and /save are shell commands to facilitate the use of the tool.  The first article discusses how to run code snippets to import a package or a type. Further, the first article discusses declaring and using variables explicitly. The second article continues with declaring and using variables; implicit variables. Further, code snippets for String comparison and statements are run in the second article. Resetting JShell is also discussed in the second article. The third article is all about running code snippets for methods in JShell. Modifying method definition, method overloading, and making a forward reference to a method are discussed as used in JShell. Some JShell specific features for methods are also discussed including listing code snippets for methods, and method modifiers not permitted in a top-level method declaration. The fourth article is mainly about running code snippets for classes in JShell including declaring a class, modifying a class, using class constructors, extending a class and overriding methods. Further, interfaces, arrays and unchecked exceptions are also discussed. The fifth article discusses running code snippets for enums and the various control flow statements. The sixth article discusses lambda expressions, in addition to discussing saving and loading code snippets in JShell.

  • Java Magazine New Edition: Java Present and Future
    par Yolande Poirier le 21 novembre 2018 à 16 h 36 min

    There is a lot happening in Java, and in this issue we do our best to make the state of Java as clear as possible. We begin with a survey (page 15) of Java developers. The survey covers JDK, tools in use, processes, and finally a profile of Java developers. We follow that up with a look at Java 11 (page 39), which was released in September: what’s in this release that you need to know about—such as changes to lambda syntax, a new HTTP client, and the updated WebSocket interface. The Java 11 release was the first in several years not to include JavaFX, which has been spun out from the JDK. This means that JavaFX can evolve on its own timeline, which is discussed (page 62) by Johan Vos, one of its principal developers. We also examine upcoming technology from the Valhalla project (page 56), which promises to make it far easier and faster to access primitive data types. This performance enhancement will be particularly welcome when accessing objects in arrays, as Ben Evans explains in his deep look inside the JVM. Finally, the product management team for Java explains recent changes (page 52) to the licensing model. In addition, we have a deep dive into the decorator design pattern (page 67), our quiz (page 78), and our book review (page 8), as well as our calendar of upcoming developer conferences and […]
