Back to newsletter 018 contents

Due to some technical problems, I haven't been able to send out the fully featured newsletter that I intended. I've had to delay the two new columns on performance tools, though I promise (barring a catastrophe) they will be in the next newsletter. But the small number of articles listed in the "recent articles" section is not because we haven't searched as much as normal. In fact I've looked through more articles this month than any previous month, and there were many interesting articles on other aspects of Java. But only six articles had tips relevant to Java Performance.

Kirk and Javva are still here with their excellent columns. Javva continues his diary, showing you ways to use performance tools that you might never have considered. And Kirk shows you how to use metrics to anticipate how much tuning work you have ahead of you, as well as covering the Java performance discussion groups.

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.

Reminder to vendors and creators of performance tools

As part of our ongoing commitment to informing our readers about performance tools, presents 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. There is already a queue of vendors and freeware authors creating submissions for this column, so if you want your tool to be presented in the near future, contact us sooner rather than later.

Backlogged Pages

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