Author(s): Ben Evans, James Gough & Chris Newland
Publisher: O'Reilly Category: Advanced Java
Amazon wrote:Performance tuning is an experimental science, but that doesn’t mean engineers should resort to guesswork and folklore to get the job done. Yet that’s often the case. With this practical book, intermediate to advanced Java technologists working with complex technology stacks will learn how to tune Java applications for performance using a quantitative, verifiable approach.
Most resources on performance tend to discuss the theory and internals of Java virtual machines, but this book focuses on the practicalities of performance tuning by examining a wide range of aspects. There are no simple recipes, tips and tricks, or algorithms to learn. Performance tuning is a process of defining and determining desired outcomes. And it requires diligence.
I'm Ben Evans, one of the authors of the book. I'll be popping into the forums to answer any questions that people have - about the book, my work with the LJC or anything else. The other authors and our illustrator should be here as well.
Thank you for having us on CodeRanch this week - and please ask away!
