You basically write Java as C++, you don't use any builtins, write everything yourself from pure java.

I know you said "almost" but you don't have to re-write huge amounts to achieve zero gc and very low latency. There are open source tools, eg. agrona, aeron, that get you a lot of the way there.

And I'd imagine sun.misc.Unsafe is used quite often too.
