J2EE Performance Testing with a look at the
performance of individual J2EE features and design patterns
Tuesday 13:00 - 13:45 (Conference Hall)
Performance is the single biggest issue facing J2EE Application developers
and is the major concern of organizations considering J2EE adoption. This
presentation provides the methodology and tools required to obtain reliable
performance data for J2EE applications running on any Application Server.
The methodology is straightforward and flexible, providing a framework for
deciding what to test, what to measure, and how to interpret the results.
As such, the methodology will allow you to understand how your J2EE
applications will perform in a production environment and also to
investigate the performance of key J2EE APIs such as Servlets, JMS and EJBs,
informing decisions that you make about J2EE architecture. In particular
various EJB design patterns will be explored from the performance point of
This is a technical seminar. The intended audience is developers,
application architects, technical managers and IT operations managers.
