We already know the from feedback we get that our newsletters are amongst the most respected in the industry. Our influence on opinion formers keeps growing all the time. We don't keep any details about subscribers to the newsletter, apart from your email addresses. But before we throw away the details, I have a quick visual scan of subscriptions, just to get a feel of who is joining. Our subscribers include every level of the company hierarchy: Presidents, CEO's, CIO's, V.P.s, Directors, Managers, Architects, and so on right through the spectrum of I.T. positions. You're in good company if you are reading this.

A note from this newsletter's sponsor

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

Well we didn't quite get to our intended weekly publication mode over the last month, due to being distracted with a number of other initiatives, but we did manage to publish one week, so we'll see if we can do better this month.

In this month's newsletter we list our usual raft of articles, tools, and more. I continued extracting tips from some more JavaOne presentations. I also have a new blog at, and seem to have made the most noteworthy performance news contribution of the month by compiling a list of case studies of successful Java sites (see news below). Included in the list is eBay, serving 380 million pages per day last year, and expected to serve 1 billion per day by 2005. Given that eBay is highly transactional and data dependent, and many of the transactions are the kind that require audit trails, it shows what a Java enterprise site can scale to.

In addition, we have most of our usual sections. Kirk's roundup covers tokenizing, result set processing, data structures, a fascinating discussion on OutputStream.write blocking, and more. Our question of the month looks at whether making an object static to reuse it is good practice; Javva The Hutt reports his holiday surfing adventures; and, of course, we have many new performance tips extracted in concise form.
