Java performance and data-driven Web applications

Get insight and actionable recommendations on distributed Java application performance from experts in application development, performance engineering, and data management.

Probably the most significant cause of performance and scalability issues with distributed Java applications is with data access code. Whether the problems are caused by poorly performing databases, poorly written SQL, or ungainly business logic routines, they have the potential to make an application slow to the point where it is unusable.

This lesson provides insight and actionable recommendations on distributed Java application performance from several longtime experts in application development, performance engineering, and data management.
