Hello and welcome to another edition of the JavaPerformanceTuning newsletter. As part of our ongoing commitment to informing our readers about performance tools, from next month we will start two columns on performance tuning tools, presenting one commercial tool and one non-commercial tool each month. If you are a vendor or creator of such a tool, and would like to have your tool presented, please contact me from this page. But do please note that we work on a first-completed, first-published basis.

I'm slipping yet further behind. The number of articles which include useful performance information is still increasing, and I have to pass some to next month. I've listed them in a new backlog section so you don't miss out if you don't care about the extracted tips. Of the categorized articles, we have the usual mixture, a lot of J2EE, a little low-level, a little GUI, and as usual an increasing number on J2ME. In the news, ECperf gives us a nice vendor punch-up, the PetStore hubbub keeps on going, and Sun decides to port the HotSpot concept to J2ME.

Kirk continues his excellent roundup of the dicussion groups, we get extra updates on the ECperf situation, and additionally Kirk introduces The Meadow Muffin Award. Javva has a rant and pronounces C and C++ almost dead, and also introduces us to the first segment of his regular diary. After reading that, you'll understand why he doesn't give his real name. You don't want to miss either of these guys.

If you feel this newsletter could be useful to a friend, why not send them the URL. Note also that Yukio Andoh's Japanese translation will hopefully be available at in a while.

These are pages which may hold information of interest to the Java performance community, but I haven't had time to read them.
