Back to newsletter 023 contents has now been available for two years. Even when the site opened, we immediately provided the most comprehensive set of information related to Java performance available anywhere on the web. Then, we opened with over five hundred performance tips at the end of October 2000. Now we're coming up to the three thousand tips mark. Tips cover everything from specification to deployment, design to profiling, volatile to EJB, J2ME to J2EE, JNI, graphics, audio, and much, much more.

Apart from the tips we also provide the most comprehensive list of Java performance resources on the web. The number of people coming to the site has steadily increased month on month, and the rate of increase seems to be growing. Almost every query for performance information in Java discussion groups and on Usenet includes a reference to All of that and we give you the relevant Java performance news too.

This two year-old toddler, born after the excesses of the dot-bomb were unravelling, is growing fast and healthily. We hope to provide comprehensive Java performance information for many years to come. Happy Birthday

Measure, analyze and maximize J2EE application performance
during load testing with Sitraka PerformaSure. Read the
Aberdeen white paper "Honing In on J2EE Performance Assurance"

This month we continue to find many articles discussing features available from the NIO library. There are also many articles covering various aspects of J2EE (JDBC, EJB, Scaling, Clustering, Sessions and Servlets), as well as articles on ThreadLocal, Swing, animation, profiling, optimizing and OS-level monitoring.

Martin Fowler's article "Yet Another Optimization Article" is worth singling out. Martin often comes up with real gem quotes, and this time is no exception. Here are a couple of those gems:

If you make an optimization and don?t measure to confirm the performance increase, all you know for certain is that you?ve made your code harder to read.
After upgrading your compiler or VM, the optimization you did six months ago could be your bottleneck today.

Lovely .sig material. Kirk and Javva are also here with their excellent contributions; we have news, new tips categories, and new tool reports. Welcome, dive in and enjoy.
