JavaMemoryModel: OOPSLA poster submission on weak memory models - chance to review

From: Bill Pugh (

I am going to submit an abstract for an OOPSLA poster session
discussion weak memory models, OO programming, and some of the
other issues we've been discussing. If anyone wants to give me
quick feedback (I need feedback by Monday), it is available at:


It is only two pages long, so obviously omits a lot of material.
It discusses some of the implementation challenges we've uncovered,
as well as the idea of safety guarantees that can't be taken for
granted in a multiprocessor system.

I'd like to turn this into a document the summarizes some of
the issues we've discussed so far, so that people new to the discussion
don't have to read 150+ mail messages to get up to speed. It needs a
little more expansion to cover more of the issues we have been
talking about.
