    Comments about oreilly WildFly Performance Tuning:

    Like many tuning books, this one carries some generally applicable tuning hints in the first few chapters. If you've read other Java tuning books, there's not much paydirt there.
    The next chapters deal with JEE and Wildfly. If you're a JBoss user, these deep insights are excellent. Bonus: the tips are based on the current community code, which will be the commercial EAP at some point in the future. Future proof advice!
    All things considered, a worthwhile read, especially for JEE users.
