Making every millisecond count! JVM performance tuning in the real-world
Why is performance analysis so hard to do well? What features of Java are the actual big-ticket items when it comes to performance? How much have recent advances in the JVM really helped? Is there any good news coming with JDK 7? How do I stop myself becoming the “performance soothsayer” of my group? How can I stop having the “which is faster – Java or C++” discussion? These are some of the questions than Ben will answer as he reviews the current state of low-level Java performance tuning for low-latency applications, and talks about his experiences squeezing every last microsecond from financial applications.
