Abstract
Due to its portability and popularity for Internet
applications, Java has become one of the major
programming languages. The similar syntax inherited from
the C language and the pure object orientated features,
compared to the non-pure object-oriented C++ language,
have caused Java to be a good candidate as a tool in
designing object oriented systems, especially in database
servers. However, the performance of the Java Virtual
Machine (JVM) would be the reason that several database
designers, such as Oracle, IBM, Sybase and Informix, have
not fully transferred their database management system
(DBMS) into Java. One of the performance indices is the
responsiveness for on-line transaction processing (OLTP)
which may be dominated by the garbage collection system
inside the JVM. In this paper eight Java programs, jess,
javac, mtrt, compress, db, db4o, smallDB and ozone, are
used to study the dynamic memory behavior. The latter four
programs are Java object-oriented database management
