First off, you still just have time to sign up to see my talk on Wednesday (London) or Thursday (Reading) - the talks are free and you have a chance to win a copy of my book (you probably have a better chance in Reading than London since more people will be at the London talk ;-). Click over here and sign up, but be quick.

We'd also like to remind you about the availability of public Java performance tuning training courses. Our first courses are being arranged for Toronto, Stockholm, and Frankfurt. Please contact us about your interest in any of these courses. Those of you who have already contacted us, please be patient, we will be getting back to you again as soon as we have completed some essential preparations regarding the classroom location in the cities.

And finally, I've had a chance to put together that J2EE application performance management (APM) article, and it's a fun article, I hope you'll enjoy it as well as learn from it. APM is one of the year's buzzwords (or more precisely buzz-acronyms), so find out what it's all about.

META Group white paper, "Managing a J2EE World".

In the newsletter we list our usual raft of articles, news, and more. In the news, it seems that -server and -client may be a thing of the past in a version 6.0. Hopefully that is because the two compiler teams have combined their efficiencies into one super-fast JIT compiler. (The alternative is that cuts have reduced the teams so that only one compiler can be supported.) And a thorough analysis of C++ vs Java performance was so good that I also made it the answer to the question of the month.

In the articles, we can see the beginning of what should be a fairly steady flow of information about the monitoring and management additions in 5.0 (formerly 1.5). And here's a heads up for you all, I was told recently (though haven't had it confirmed yet) that JVMPI support will be terminated in 6.0, since we now have the JVMTI; so anyone with a monitoring implementation based on JVMPI may want to start checking that with Sun.

In addition, we have most of our usual sections. Kirk's roundup talks about Cray's and covers an awesome discussion; Javva The Hutt gives us his latest diary entry; and we also have another new cartoon, and many new performance tips extracted in concise form,

Those of you who are fans of our cartoonist, "profiler", may like to know that there is also a "profiler" cartoon over at APLawrence.
