http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/vm/performance-enhancements-7.html


I read this link multiple times,and can just not figure out what is meant

could someone give me a quick summarise what is meant in more laymen terms than technical terms or laymens to technical if possible

that would be greatly appreciated

thanks,

There are lots of performance enhancements in the current JVM, which you don't need to know about.

Adam,
Campbell's summary sounds cheeky on first read, but it is 100% accurate. Every version of the VM gets faster. The implementation details aren't important.

Nobody knows all those details, except possibly the people implementing those enhancements. Everybody else needs to know how to search for those enhancements and read them, but at your stage, it is a waste of time knowing that.

And even then only when looking for something specific!

All right: I'll change my assertion:
Everybody else needs to know when not to search for those enhancements and read them
