Hello all!
I have proposed a JEP to support allocation of Java heap on new memory devices such as NV-DIMMs like Intel's 3D XPoint.
Such a feature has applications in multi-JVM deployments, big data applications and in-memory databases.
Please find the details here - https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8171181 and the patch for the implementation is at http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~kkharbas/8153327_webrev.04
I would appreciate a review and feedback from the community for this JEP.
Thank you!
