Today was a big day for Sun with the announcement
of our new Sun Fire T1000 and T2000 servers.
As part of the Java Enterprise Platforms and Developer
Organization (which we used to call the Java Performance
Group) we thought it would be appropriate to
publish information on tuning Java applications
on these new servers. But we realized that many
of these recommendations apply to server applications
on any multi-processor machines. So we started
to make the tuning recommendations more general....
For any of you that have followed our messages
at JavaOne in recent years you have heard us
talk about the importance of analyzing performance
as part of the development process as well as
using statistics for the basis of decision
making from Java benchmarks. We know that there
is a great need to put all of these ideas together
into one document -- a one stop shop for Java tuning.
Thus was created the first draft of the
Java Tuning White Paper. This reference is intended
to be a practical guide for Java performance
best practices and a "how to" guide for Java tuning.
It has some rough edges and certainly could use
more examples, etc. Since we now have this forum
in the Java Performance Community we can
take feedback, comments, bugs, and enhancement
requests from the community.
I would therefore invite you to please review
the new Java Tuning White Paper and post
your feedback in this thread.
