Modern embedded devices (e.g., PDAs, mobile phones) are now incorporating Java as a very popular implementation language in their designs. These new embedded systems include multiple applications that are dynamically launched by the user, which can produce very energy-hungry systems if the interactions between the applications and the garbage collectors(More)
A first-rate e-Health system saves lives, provides better patient care, allows complex but useful epidemiologic analysis and saves money. However, there may also be concerns about the costs and complexities associated with e-health implementation, and the need to solve issues about the energy footprint of the high-demanding computing facilities.

Dealing with asymmetry in the architecture opens a plethora of questions from the perspective of scheduling task-parallel applications, and there exist early attempts to address this problem via ad-hoc strategies embedded into a runtime framework. In this paper we take a different path, which consists in addressing the complexity of the problem at the(More)
Nowadays, Java is used in all types of embedded devices. For these memory-constrained systems, the automatic dynamic memory manager (Garbage Collector or GC) has been always a key factor in terms of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) performance. Moreover, in current embedded platforms, power consumption is becoming as important as performance. Thus, in this(More)
