Both Adobe ColdFusion and Railo are Java-based web development platforms. In layman's terms that means: Your CFML engine runs on top of a JEE application server or a servlet container and the JVM (Java Virtual Machine).
The latter is pretty much the low-level runtime environment of your CFML application. To make sure your CFML engine operates in a well performing and stable way, you need to have some knowledge about Java memory management and how that can impact the behaviour of your CFML server.
The objective of this talk is to change developers' mindsets when it comes to the JVM below ACF and Railo. There's an myth that JVM behaviour and JVM tuning is a "dark art" and that has to stop. It will also equip you with a level of fundamental knowledge that you can use to push back when someone tries to tell you to "just use my JVM settings" or to "use the settings this guy had on his blog".
