Oracle has initiated a renewal of Java and one of the more important goals is to make it easier to write concurrent software that makes use of all cores in modern hardware. This will require changes both to the language Java as well as its virtual machine. I will describe the latest design that we are working on and demonstrate what can be achieved today using the JRockit JVM and how we can improve concurrency in javac itself.
