SpringSource recently announced a new industry-leading Java memory management feature called "Elastic Memory for Java", which is a major step forwards in making vSphere the best place to run Java workloads. Ben will present a detailed technical look at the problem space, some best practice for running Java on virtual and an in-depth look at the new feature and what it offers. The session promises to be an engaging mix of technical insight, live demos and Q&A.
