This month I've included some articles on performance aspects of data structures in C#. Wait, I've not gone mad, nor am I about to start a parallel C# performance site. The reality is that the information in these articles are completely applicable in Java, and any well written article with performance information is of interest to me.

Otherwise, the performance news continues to show just how hot Java performance tools are this year. We at are doing our bit to ensure that you know just what tools are available and how to use them, with our Performance Tools & Methodology course, our intensive hands-on one day course that covers a host of Java performance tools.

In the newsletter we list our usual raft of articles, news, and more. We have most of our usual sections: Kirk's roundup covers memory tuning, caching, session state, obscure flags, 1.5 enhanced loop and more; our question of the month asks why long primary keys are bad for performance; Javva The Hutt continues his diary and writes a memory monitor with some interesting side effects; we have a new cartoon, and many new performance tips extracted in concise form.

Additionally, we have a special article on the Commando Pattern, with a working example showing how it can improve the performance of any application. One not to be missed!
