Performance tuning is an experimental science, but that doesn’t mean engineers should resort to guesswork and folklore to get the job done. Yet that’s often the case. With this practical book, intermediate to advanced Java technologists working with complex technology stacks will learn how to tune Java applications for performance using a quantitative, verifiable approach. Most resources on performance tend to discuss the theory and internals of Java virtual machines, but this book focuses on the practicalities of performance tuning by examining a wide range of aspects. There are no simple recipes, tips and tricks, or algorithms to learn. Performance tuning is a process of defining and determining desired outcomes. And it requires diligence. Learn how Java principles and technology make the best use of modern hardware and operating systems Explore several performance tests and common anti-patterns that can vex your team Understand the pitfalls of measuring Java performance numbers and the drawbacks of microbenchmarking Dive into JVM garbage collection logging, monitoring, tuning, and tools Explore JIT compilation and Java language performance techniques Learn performance aspects of the Java Collections API and get an overview of Java concurrency

Continuous delivery adds enormous value to the business and the entire software delivery lifecycle, but adopting this practice means mastering new skills typically outside of a developer’s comfort zone. In this practical book, Daniel Bryant and Abraham Marín-Pérez provide guidance to help experienced Java developers master skills such as architectural design, automated quality assurance, and application packaging and deployment on a variety of platforms. Not only will you learn how to create a comprehensive build pipeline for continually delivering effective software, but you’ll also explore how Java application architecture and deployment platforms have affected the way we rapidly and safely deliver new software to production environments. Get advice for beginning or completing your migration to continuous delivery Design architecture to enable the continuous delivery of Java applications Build application artifacts including fat JARs, virtual machine images, and operating system container (Docker) images Use continuous integration tooling like Jenkins, PMD, and find-sec-bugs to automate code quality checks Create a comprehensive build pipeline and design software to separate the deploy and release processes Explore why functional and system quality attribute testing is vital from development to delivery Learn how to effectively build and test applications locally and observe your system while it runs in production

Best practices to adapt and bottlenecks to avoid About This Book Tackle all kinds of performance-related issues and streamline your development Master the new features and new APIs of Java 9 to implement highly efficient and reliable codes Gain an in-depth knowledge of Java application performance and obtain best results from performance testing Who This Book Is For This book is for Java developers who would like to build reliable and high-performance applications. Prior Java programming knowledge is assumed. What You Will Learn Work with JIT compilers Understand the usage of profiling tools Generate JSON with code examples Leverage the command-line tools to speed up application development Build microservices in Java 9 Explore the use of APIs to improve application code Speed up your application with reactive programming and concurrency In Detail Finally, a book that focuses on the practicalities rather than theory of Java application performance tuning. This book will be your one-stop guide to optimize the performance of your Java applications. We will begin by understanding the new features and APIs of Java 9. You will then be taught the practicalities of Java application performance tuning, how to make the best use of garbage collector, and find out how to optimize code with microbenchmarking. Moving ahead, you will be introduced to multithreading and learning about concurrent programming with Java 9 to build highly concurrent and efficient applications. You will learn how to fine tune your Java code for best results. You will discover techniques on how to benchmark performance and reduce various bottlenecks in your applications. We'll also cover best practices of Java programming that will help you improve the quality of your codebase. By the end of the book, you will be armed with the knowledge to build and deploy efficient, scalable, and concurrent applications in Java. Style and approach This step-by-step guide provides real-world examples to give you a hands-on experience.
