Back to newsletter 020 contents

This month we have everything. Our biggest newsletter yet. Kirk's roundup, Javva The Hutt's diary, my new tips, all the news and interesting articles from the last month, new category pages in the tips section of the website and two performance tool reports. And I've even started making inroads into the backlog! Ten years ago this would have been a corporate newsletter costing about $1500 for a year's subscription. Now my sponsors, contributors and myself are subsidizing the costs, so don't forget to visit's sponsors if you are interested in their messages.

A note from this newsletter's sponsor

Get a free download of GemStone Facets 2.0 and see how this
patented technology supports JCA 1.0 to seamlessly integrate
with J2EE application servers to enhance performance.

Our tool reports this month cover Hendrik Schreiber's GCViewer tool for viewing garbage collection statistics and, Velocitop's Catapult Java-to-Oracle performance tuner. All our tool reports, past and present, are available from the tool reports page.

The new articles listed this month are as usual wide ranging, covering J2ME, J2SE, J2EE, JDK 1.4, web servers, application servers, database communications, graphics, servlets, JSPs and patterns. You could be mean and not tell your colleagues about, since we do give you an edge. Or you can be generous and let them know about the best newsletter in the business. In a representative poll 50% of our contributors said you should spread the word (that was Kirk), and 50% said keep it to yourself 'cause it's a dog-eat-dog world and information is power (that was Javva).

Don't miss Kirk's roundup of the Java performance discussion groups, talking about -O, fast collection handling, nanosecond timing, J2EE transactions, and much more. And Javva The Hutt keeps up with the latest installment of his diary.

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.
