Hello,

Does anybody know about any good free Java Code Profilers/Optimizers out there.

Any personal experiences? I just installed AppPerfect Devsuite. It has a standard (free) version and a professional version (to be payed for). It integrates in Eclipe. It's seems good but not great.

Any others?

We are using JProfiler (with Eclipse integration) and are quite happy with it.

1) Hprof is one profiling tool that comes with JDK and it need a startup VM option during the application launch.

Specify format as 'b' binary and you can visualize with Heap Analysis Tool(HAT) --> https://hat.dev.java.net/
java -agentlib:format=b Application1
or java -XrunHprof:format=b Application1

2) Jconsole is also one more solution which helps to give you a picture of an appication objectheap/stack occupancy, CPU performance etc.

3) Last but not the least is the JFluid that comes with Netbeans IDE. Jfluid helps to connect to a running application and doesn't requires any VM option during the application startup.

Hope this Helps,
Arjun.
