Java platform tools and technology

Java tools and technology help application developers build better code faster. Some Java tools are aimed at increasing the efficiency of applications running on the Java platform in terms of the computing and storage resources necessary to run the application. Other Java technologies are focused on making Java applications more maintainable via modularity and component reuse or other strategies. Still other tools and technologies are designed to make each application developer more effective by increasing communication (collaboration tools) or reducing the need for repetitive boilerplate code (high level abstractions and Java code libraries).

  • Java performance

    Java performance tuning is a function of many things, such as code, networks, hardware (client configuration, memory, CPU speed, storage capacity, etc.) and databases. It is almost impossible to predict exactly where a performance tuning failure might occur. Performance tuning tools allow...
  • Java performance

    Application performance measurement is an important part of testing and refining a Java application. Performance and metrics standards help developers and QA teams make sure the application meets expectations and will function properly once it is deployed. In this section on software...
  • Cloud platforms

    Cloud computing applies the resources of many computers in a network cluster to a single problem at the same time. Once confined to scientific or technical problems that require a great number of computer processing cycles or access to large amounts of data, cloud platforms are now being...
  • JVM tuning

    Within a Java-based system, a lot of responsibility is put on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to make sure the application runs smoothly and reliably. JVM performance tuning issues are therefore of paramount concern to any Java developer. Application Performance Monitoring systems,...
  • Java HPC

    Java High Performance Computing (HPC ) refers to the ability of an application to handle different levels of usage. A highly scalable application will only require additional resources in order to handle higher usage loads. An application that is not scalable will require modifications to...
