JRocket is BEA’s own Java Virtual Machine (JVM), developed out of the need for increased performance on the ever-popular and low-cost Intel platform. During this presentation I will go over the benefits of the JRocket JVM, where you might use it your environment, and what options you might have. BEA is firmly committed to the JRocket JVM and there are a number of innovations built on the JRocket technology to enable you to both monitor and horizontally scale out your application in a virtualised environment using the LiquidVM and the BEA WebLogic Operations Control which I will also present briefly.
