The most complete list of -XX options for Java JVM

There was a wonderful page with that list (, but it seems it's gone now and not available any more. Luckily there is which allows to make time flowing backwards and recover things which have passed away long time back. So, I have just get that page out of grave and copy/pasted here to return that bit of information back to life. Also I'm constantly doing updates to the original list, so by now it should be longer than it was initially.

Integration of TeamCity 6.x and Fitnesse

Team city is wonderful CI and build management platform, which combines great capabilities with really simple configuration. I seriously love it for the way it is designed, configured and managed and would recommend it to anybody who cares about quality and wants to have fast feedback on build/test/integration problems. FitNess is “The fully integrated standalone wiki, and acceptance testing framework”, which I, personally, do not like, but testers (at least ones I know) say it is good. I still do not believe them, but have to live with it :)

EhCache replication: RMI vs JGroups.

Recently, I was working on one product which required replicated caching. Caching provider was already decided - EhCache, and the remained was a question about transport. Which one is the best option? By the best option here I mean just the one which has better performance. The performance measurement was done just between two of available transports - JGroups and RMI, others were not considered, sorry.
