Performance has been an important issue for Java developers ever since the first version hit the streets. Over the years, Java performance has improved dramatically, but tuning is essential to get the best results, especially for J2EE applications. You can never have code that runs too fast.Java Peformance Tuning, 2nd edition provides a comprehensive and indispensable guide to eliminating all types of performance problems. Using many real-life examples to work through the tuning process in detail, JPT shows how tricks such as minimizing object creation and replacing strings with arrays can really pay off in improving your code's performance.Tuning J2EE applications bears many similarities to tuning J2SE apps, but important and specific considerations apply. For this reason, Java Performance Tuning, Second Edition includes four new chapters: a new chapter on J2EE application tuning in general followed by chapters on tuning JDBC, servlets and JSPs, and EJBs.Java Performance Tuning offers common-sense advice about what to tune and what to leave alone, emphasizing techniques that provide big performance gains with minimal code restructuring. It gives you crucial guidance that helps you tune without destroying your program's architecture. Blindly changing things in an effort to make a program run faster is a great way to create buggy, unmaintainable code. Java Performance Tuning teaches you to work efficiently and effectively, resulting in code that is robust, maintainable, and fast.Java Performance Tuning, Second Edition shows you how to:

  • Create a performance plan
  • Glean information about your program's behavior from profiling tools
  • Identify bottlenecks before tuning
  • Minimize the number of objects your program creates, particularly critical for J2EE applications
  • Optimize the use of strings
  • Avoid performance penalties from inefficient code
  • Improve the behavior of loops and switches
  • Optimize I/O behavior
  • Use appropriate algorithms for sorting and other common tasks
  • Use threads effectively
  • Optimize the performance of distributed systems
  • Speed up servlets and JSPs
  • Structure JDBC usage efficiently
  • Use effective design patterns to optimize EJB performance
Covers JDK 1.4

Good book, old java but still useful

Comments about oreilly Java Performance Tuning, 2nd Edition:

I read this book and have to say that it was really good. Bad thing is that it is about quite dated and only one JVM. I bought the book after being inspired by Stan who wrote interesting article with different approach When optimizing - don't forget the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) (http://bigdatamatters.com/bigdatamatters/2009/08/jvm-performance.html) . I wanted to tune my application as much as possible and this book was very helpful in this task. Oh by read I mean, read and tune!

Comments about oreilly Java Performance Tuning, 2nd Edition:

I have been developing in Java for 10 years and I had no clue about lots of trick that are taught in this book. A real eye opener.

I only wish there was an edition for Java 5....

a good book, but do you really need it?

By aFuqua

Comments about oreilly Java Performance Tuning, 2nd Edition:

Java Performance Tuning would be a good book to have if you have a seriously performance intensive application or for someone who just really dug performance issues. But it wouldn't be of interest to most people. Most programmers should be able to do all the performance tuning they need to do with a program like Optomizeit.

Just great. I didn't buy this book, because I wasn't impressed with the first edition, but this really is a totally different book.
