More than 10 of his novels have been made into films, and The Immigrants was made into a television miniseries in His novels are page-turners, in which characters struggle with personal, political, and religious questions in their lives. The female characters-a number of his books have female protagonists-are strong, intelligent, and capable people who must fight to maintain their families and their fortunes amidst the tumultuous events of the twentieth century.

It is all of that: a model, which may easily become a classic example, of what to put in and what to leave out in the writing of a historical novel. There maybe additional barriers that could be eliminated by the removal of the collector. For example the barrier for card marking to record the mutation of a pointer from tenured into young. Escape analysis already minimizes the load on mutator threads so it seems to be the only way to eliminate any more of these barriers is to either improve escape analysis or limit the JVM to a single mutator thread.
As an example, I worked with a client to reduce allocation rates in their product. In our bench we went from 1. While it would be interesting to run this benchmark using a no-GC JVM, I'm fairly confident that if there were any further gains realized, they would be quite minimal.
After a conversation with Aleksey it got sorted that there are indeed gains in application throughput that may be realized with a no-GC version of the JVM. Would fun to see if these gains could be realized. I can't help thinking that if you are trying to write Java code that doesn't create any objects on the heap then you really need to think about switching to a different language. Rust springs to mind. The challenge with adopting Rust is that nobody wants to be the first to adopt it. I wanted to try a project with it last year, and it really wasn't ready for prime-time.
I wanted to like it Swift might be a better option. I think Swift on the server will be become big and might replicate the Java success story there. It might even replace a lot of Java there in a couple of years.

While that might be true, I think the point here is not so much the amount of memory that the application uses, but the predictability of the memory footprint. Allocating objects to the stack as opposed to the heap is not about using less memory, is about preventing garbage collections. Is your profile up-to-date? Please take a moment to review and update.

Memory placed on the stack is only visible by the current thread and during execution of the current method; therefore, when the current thread leaves the current method, this memory is automatically released without the need of a garbage collector. Memory in the heap, however, is accessible by the entire application at any point, which means an independent garbage collector needs to verify when a piece of memory is no longer in use and can be reclaimed.
Allocation of primitives always goes on the stack, and therefore poses no pressure for the garbage collector. If one was to write code using mostly primitive types, there would be fewer objects for the garbage collector to look after. Producing no garbage is not the same as producing no objects; objects can still be created without the need of a garbage collector to look after them: An application or library could produce a number of objects at the beginning and then reuse them constantly; this requires the developer to understand the memory footprint of the application very well.

Sometimes the compiler can understand that a particular object is not going to be used outside of a method; this is known as escape analysis. When the object is found not to escape the method, it can be allocated to the stack as opposed to the heap, and therefore eliminated automatically as soon as the current method finishes.
