Last week, Sun published a new SPECjAppServer 2004 benchmark score: 8439.36 JOPS@Standard . [I'd have written about it sooner, but it was published late Wednesday, and I had to go home and bake a lot of pies.] This is a "big" number, and frankly, it's the one thing that's been missing in our repertoire of submissions.
You've probably read by now, today Sun released the product version of Glassfish V2, or the Sun Java Systems Application Server 9.1. So it's time to look back a little, but also to look forward.
Today, Sun officially announced SPECjAppServer 2004 scores on our Sun Java

Almost every thread pool implementation takes great pains to make sure
that it can dynamically resize the number of threads it utilizes: you

6 can scale to 16,000 users and what that means for glassfish.
Since glassfish can easily scale to 16,000 users as well (as href="http://people.apache.org/%7Efhanik/tomcat/glassfish-reconf.txt">Covalent

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the
of ab, the Apache Benchmark program. It's major shortcoming is that
it is single-threaded, making it very difficult to measure accurately a
multi-threaded application or web server.
For the fifth time this year, I've been contacted by a distraught user
claiming that glassfish doesn't scale or run well based on results seen
from ab (the href="http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/programs/a
Today, Sun releases version 9.0 Update Release 1 Patch 1 of its application server (quite a mouthful!). See what's new in this release.
