“The definitive master class in performance tuning Java applications…if you love all the gory details, this is the book for you.”
–James Gosling, creator of the Java Programming Language
Improvements in the Java platform and new multicore/multiprocessor hardware have made it possible to dramatically improve the performance and scalability of Java software.
Java™ Performance covers the latest Oracle and third-party tools for monitoring and measuring performance on a wide variety of hardware architectures and operating systems. The authors present dozens of tips and tricks you'll find nowhere else.
You'll learn how to construct experiments that identify opportunities for optimization, interpret the results, and take effective action. You'll also find powerful insights into microbenchmarking–including how to avoid common mistakes that can mislead you into writing poorly performing software. Then, building on this foundation, you'll walk through optimizing the Java HotSpot VM, standard and multitiered applications; Web applications, and more. Coverage includes
Using this book, you can squeeze maximum performance and value from all your Java applications–no matter how complex they are, what platforms they're running on, or how long you've been running them.
