Hi guys,
I'm looking for a good java performance-related book with some references to scalability as well. So far, I'm thinking about "java performance and scalability" by Dov Bulka, but it's already pretty old (2000).
Any good alternatives out there? I hope you guys can give some good pointers.
Regards,
Raf

I like O'Reilly's Java Performance Tuning (Jack Schirazzi).
Not seen the 2nd edition but the first edition is excellent.
There's a review here: http://www.javaranch.com/bunkhouse/Advanced.jsp

I have used Java 2 Performance and Idiom Guide by Craig Larman and Rhett Guthrie. It's older (1999- ), but the principles outlined in it are more good OO programming practice rather than tweaking the latest VM. The chapters are even arranged in order of impact, the greater impact on performance, the earlier a subject appears in the book.
