Memory manager on Win32
First, read this:
As far as I can see, there's a chance beyond the "grey rect problem" fix to further enhance performance of Java client app. This effect is really annoying and it's a critical one for Swing client apps as they appear sluggish although they aren't. I keep telling my customers of this effect for years now (not to bother *me* with it, but M$, or switch to Linux), but few days ago I stumbled over the links above...
So infact there's a solution for this. What about adding a simplified API to adjust the memory manager setting, or, even better, embedding this into the java heap manager to intelligently adjust these according to the current load of the JVM?
Comments welcome :-)
