I continue to be surprised at the potential performance gains possible from future implementations of the JVM. Looking at the details listed in the first two news items we cover, there are still gains possible from the lifecycle of objects and scaled use of JVMs.

I'm surprised because Java is already as fast as any language available - only your design and non-optimal implementations restrict your application from being as fast as possible. And for those cases, Java already boasts the best sets of tools available in any language for probing your application in production or development to find those bottlenecks. So maybe you can see why I'm surprised; but surprises like that are nice, I'm happy to have more of them thrown at me any time.

In the newsletter we list our usual raft of articles, news and tools, and new performance tips extracted in concise form. In particular, I would wholeheartedly recommend you check out chapter 5 of Scott Delap's book which implements an automatic detector of Swing threading violations - a tool that every GUI developer should include in their everyday development suite.

Multi-threaded applications offer a better user experience,
generally run faster, and allow better encapsulation.
They don't have to be as tricky as you think.
