In a customer visit this morning, I ran across two things that seem to come up a lot:
- Memory tuning (Knowing when/how to muck with ObjectMemory space sizes, and wen/how to tune MemoryPolicy)
- The existence of the double buffering window manager policy in VW 7.x.
The latter is often a simple solution to flicker problems in an application; the former involves appropriate tuning to an application's memory profile so that the GC sub-system isn't doing unnecessary work. In this area, I'd strongly suggest having a look at the appropriate pages of the VW Application Developer's Guide - it's well documented.
