Final Release Date: September 2000
Pages: 442

No matter what language they're programming in, developers always wish things would run faster! Especially when writing mission-critical applications, no one wants to be limited by the programming environment.Java Performance Tuning provides all the details you need to know to "performance tune" any type of Java program and make Java code run significantly faster.Java Performance Tuning contains step-by-step instructions on all aspects of the performance tuning process, right from such early considerations as setting goals, measuring performance, and choosing a compiler. Extensive examples for tuning many parts of an application are described in detail, and any pitfalls are identified. The book also provides performance tuning checklists that enable developers to make their tuning as comprehensive as possible.Java Performance Tuning is a book to help you "roll up your sleeves" and examine your code in detail in order to apply different tuning techniques to produce the best possible result.The book shows you how to:

  • Create and plan a tuning strategy
  • Avoid performance penalties from inefficient code
  • Minimize the number of objects a program creates
  • Improve the behavior of loops and switches
  • Use threads effectively

Java Performance Tuning Review

By Andrew Westbrook

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media Java Performance Tuning:

This book is one of the best-written, most informative Java books I have ever read. It does an excellent job presenting numerous case studies where application performance can be improved with minor and/or major changes. By providing a comparison of the runtime for each different method used, it shows developers how much gain they can expect for their effort. The author also explains in easy to understand English why the changes have the effect they do, making the book more than just a collection of copyable hacks. The one complaint I have about this book is that it does not cover enough topics. I would like to see it cover JDBC in more detail. In addition, comparisons of native compilers (e.g. TowerJ) to the JVMs would be helpful. Perhaps a second edition or a volume two could provide more case studies. However, I think this book is a must have for anyone who is trying to write fast Java programs.
