Java Performance: The Definitive Guide

Java Performance: The Definitive Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world of Java performance has shifted significantly in the past ten years. Multicore machines and 64-bit operating systems are now standard even for casual users, and Java itself has introduced new features to manage applications. The base JVM has kept pace with those developments and offers a very different performance profile in its current versions. By guiding you through this changing landscape, Java Performance: The Definitive Guide helps you gain the best performance from your Java applications.

Youll explore JVM features that traditionally affected performance—including the just-in-time compiler, garbage collection, and language features—before diving in to aspects of Java 7 and 8 designed for maximum performance in today's applications. Youll learn features such as the G1 garbage collector to maximize your applications throughput without causing it to pause, and the Java Flight Recorder, which enables you to see application performance details without the need for separate, specialized profiling tools.

Whether youre new to Java and need to understand the basics of tuning the JVM, or a seasoned developer looking to eek out that last 10% of application performance, this is the book you want.

Synopsis:

Coding and testing are often considered separate areas of expertise. In this comprehensive guide, author and Java expert Scott Oaks takes the approach that anyone who works with Java should be equally adept at understanding how code behaves in the JVM, as well as the tunings likely to help its performance.

Youll gain in-depth knowledge of Java application performance, using the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the Java platform, including the language and API. Developers and performance engineers alike will learn a variety of features, tools, and processes for improving the way Java 7 and 8 applications perform.

  • Apply four principles for obtaining the best results from performance testing
  • Use JDK tools to collect data on how a Java application is performing
  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of using a JIT compiler
  • Tune JVM garbage collectors to affect programs as little as possible
  • Use techniques to manage heap memory and JVM native memory
  • Maximize Java threading and synchronization performance features
  • Tackle performance issues in Java EE and Java SE APIs
  • Improve Java-driven database application performance
