There is a subset of Java developers that encounter performance issues, and a subset of those that encounter lots of performance issues, and yet a smaller subset that encounter lots of performance issues and write about them. Typically, those writers write about some particular aspect of the issues they've encountered, but on occasion we get a detailed overview or a nuts and bolts article which covers lots of areas. The extracted tips from these types of articles ends up numbering dozens rather than the five or six we normally see.

Recently we were lucky to have one of each type of these articles published. published a page of performance bloopers which goes into the nitty gritty of performance issues that were encountered and fixed in the eclipse application. These are common issues that happen in many applications, you are well advised to read the article, or at least the tips we extracted. At the other end of the spectrum, TheServerSide published an excellent overview of performance testing by Kirk, and one of the three dozen tips we get from Kirk is our quote of the month:

"Benchmarks almost always produce surprising results and it is very difficult to create a proper schedule around surprises."

Further to last month's announcement that Javva the Hutt will be back, we couldn't quite get copy in time for this month's newsletter, but we should definitely have his column from next month. Meanwhile, for those of you who don't know Javva, or want a reminder, we've added a page for you to access all his old columns here

Now read on for our other news, this months selected articles and tools, and of course our many new extracted performance tips which include those from the articles we discussed above. Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that our sponsor just below is giving away free copies of "Pro Java EE 5 Performance Management and Optimization".
