Java Tutorials by Dr Heinz Kabutz

Ever heard of -XX:SelfDestructTimer=42? It's a JVM flag. Guess what it does? We follow some breadcrumbs to figure out what the JVM flags are, how to get a quick description in globals.hpp and lastly, show where to discover them in the OpenJDK source code.

Audience: intermediate to advanced Java programmers

This and much more is available also in our new self-study course: Extreme Java - Concurrency Performance for Java 8.
