Isolation API in JDK7?
Hello fellow developers,
A feature that I really wanted to see in JDK5, which was skipped again in JDK6, is the Isolation API.
(In short, this feature makes it possible to run multiple Java programs in one JVM. E.g. the JVM could start as a service at boot time, making all Java program startups instantaneous. Memory consumption would reduce too. This would probably be the last step to make Java app(let)s feel native.)
Ever since this feature got dismissed from JDK6 (and I still remember the sad day it was announced on Chet Haases's blog), I haven't heard of it :-(
I was wondering, what is the status of implementing the Isolation API in JDK7? I hope the silence isn't because it got canceled altogether. Let me know, anyone! Also, if you know of any good quality 3rd party implementation, don't hold the info back! Thanks.
