Simon Ritter explains the vision and capabilities of the Real-Time Java specification (RTSJ), if your Java app really, really must respond within a certain time regardless of what the garbage collector does, RTSJ is now a possibility rather than a probability.
Finding performance bottlenecks can be a difficult task and it can get even more difficult as our applications grow in size. The Box is a methodology tool that focuses us efforts to improve performance.If you want to be consistent and predictable, getting rid of the guessing is a must.
OpenTerracotta is an open source enterprise-class JVM clustering solution that can take multi-threaded single-JVM apps and have them run across multiple JVMs with no code changes. Orion Letizi goes super-indepth on Terracotta and how it works, explaining how to do session replication, distributed caching, master/worker, and more.
