The ONLY complete, up-to-date guide to all aspects of Java performance ac acThe first one-stop guide to identifying, isolating, and fixing Java performance issues on multicore and multiprocessor processor platforms - from two of Sun's leading Java performance experts. acIncludes crucial new insights into microbenchmarking found nowhere else. acContains up-to-the-minute coverage of Java optimization, including migration of older applications. Given Java's ubiquity and indispensability, Java software performance is of crucial importance to millions of developers worldwide. The emergence of multi-core systems and the evolution of the Java platform give developers many new opportunities to optimize performance. Now, three of Sun's leading Java performance experts have written the first start-to-finish guide to optimizing Java performance in today's multi-core systems. Java Performance gives developers, designers, and architects all the information they need to leverage Java's performance and scalability abilities on any modern multicore or multiprocessor system. This book's end-to-end coverage addresses all these topics: monitoring and profiling; the effective use of garbage collection and other language features; adaptive and platform-specific tuning; techniques for maximizing scalability; and much more. The authors' extensive benchmarking coverage includes an indispensable introduction to effective microbenchmarks - including guidance on avoiding the common microbenchmarking mistakes that mislead developers into writing badlyperforming software. The book also contains a complete section on Java performance enhancement, including opportunities and challenges associated with migrating software from Java 1.4.2 and Java 5 - issues that more and more Java developers are now facing.This booka#39;s end-to-end coverage addresses all these topics: monitoring and profiling; the effective use of garbage collection and other language features; adaptive and platform-specific tuning; techniques for maximizing scalability; and ...
