"This is the sort of book that I look for as an advanced programmer. There just aren't enough of these types of books out there."

When your enterprise solutions are written in Java, system performance equals organizational productivity.
As Java is exploding into business environments, programmers require a new approach to encompass enterprise-wide thinking. With today's distributed computing environments magnifying even minor performance pitfalls, large-scale tuning can make the difference between success and just getting by. Steven L. Halter and Steven J. Munroe, who have been working with Java from its very beginning, bring their experiences from the IBM SanFrancisco Project to this unique book.
Their expertise provides a brilliant guide to the complexity of running business code on a massive system with a large, heterogeneous user population. By exploring performance issues from the ground up, they show you how to design a framework to withstand the changing demands of a growing business. Right from the start, you'll get general concepts and specific tips on improving enterprise Java performance, illustrated withactual Java code that you can put to work for you. Just some of the technologies included are: JVM/JIT, SanFrancisco, Enterprise JavaBeans, CORBA, and Jini. Real Java code examples illustrate:
- Performance theory
- Performance obstacles
- Local/remote issues
- System tuning
- Effects of scale
- Enterprise JavaBeans
