Just to be curious, how hard would it be to integrate the
Parallell(Old)GC with CMS?
As far as I can imagine it would be quite beneficial to fall back to a
multithreaded stop-the-world collector compared to a single-threaded

Another idea would be a multithreaded CMS stop-the-world
defragmentation phase, which could prevent CMS to fail because of

The reason I ask is because I should start to work on a master thesis
soon and java's garbage collectors would surely be an intersting topic

Thank you in advance, Clemens
