I was going through the contents of the book and had a couple of questions related to the performance tuning.
Does this book put some light on-
G1 GC that has been introduced in java 7, and how much performance benefit we can get using G1 GC. How to tune GC, how much should be the Heap, PermGenSpace, OldGen ratio for max performance. Does java has tools like JProfiler, to identify the bottleneck?

Few other questions
As java has been taken over by the Oracle, will they continue to support java as opensource? What you guys think on the future of Java? Can we expect the same kind of innovations with Oracle as Sun did? It seems Oracle is looking at Java in business terms.

I have two quick questions after seeing the summary of the book..
1. What might be the purpose of including JVM-based languages Groovy, Scala, and Clojure in the book.

2. It's noted modern approaches to testing, build, and CI are discussed. Does testing denotes JUnit testing and build discusses regarding build tools like Ant?
