Improvements in the Java platform and new multicore/multiprocessor hardware have made it possible to dramatically improve the performance and scalability of Java software.
Java™ Performance covers the latest Oracle and third-party tools for monitoring and measuring performance on a wide variety of hardware architectures and operating systems. The authors present dozens of tips and tricks you’ll find nowhere else.
You’ll learn how to construct experiments that identify opportunities for optimization, interpret the results, and take effective action. You’ll also find powerful insights into microbenchmarking–including how to avoid common mistakes that can mislead you into writing poorly performing software. Then, building on this foundation, you’ll walk through optimizing the Java HotSpot VM, standard and multitiered applications; Web applications, and more. Coverage includesTaking a proactive approach to meeting application performance and scalability goals Monitoring Java performance at the OS level in Windows, Linux, and Oracle Solaris environments Using modern Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and OS observability tools to profile running systems, with almost no performance penalty Gaining “under the hood” knowledge of the Java HotSpot VM that can help you address most Java performance issues Integrating JVM-level and application monitoring Mastering Java method and heap (memory) profiling Tuning the Java HotSpot VM for startup, memory footprint, response time, and latency Determining when Java applications require rework to meet performance goals Systematically profiling and tuning performance in both Java SE and Java EE applications Optimizing the performance of the Java HotSpot VM
Using this book, you can squeeze maximum performance and value from all your Java applications–no matter how complex they are, what platforms they’re running on, or how long you’ve been running them.
For developers comfortable with previous Java versions, this guide covers nearly all of Java SE 8, and includes a chapter focused on changes coming in Java 9. Need to understand how functional idioms will change the way you write code? This cookbook—chock full of use cases—is for you.

Entirely example-based, JavaFX 8: Introduction by Example begins with the fundamentals of installing the software and creating a simple interface. From there, you'll move in progressive steps through the process of developing applications using JavaFX’s standard drawing primitives. You'll then explore images, animations, media, and web. This new edition incorporates the changes resulting from the switch to Java 8 SDK. It covers advanced topics such as custom controls, JavaFX 3D, gesture devices, and embedded systems. Best of all, the book is full of working code that you can adapt and extend to all your future projects.Entirely example-based Filled with fun and practical code examples Covers all that's new in Java 8 relating to JavaFX such as Lambda expressions and StreamsCovers gesture devices, 3D display, embedded systems, and other advanced topics
Borrowing from Nietzsche's aesthetic dichotomy of Apollo and Dionysus, the book uncovers the protracted evolution of Burgess's fiction and offers a unifying theory which links his early postcolonial fiction chronologically, via his modernist experiments like A Clockwork Orange and Nothing Like The Sun, to his late classics Mozart and the Wolfgang and A Dead Man in Deptford.
This volume clarifies Burgess's seminal role as both late modernist and early postmodernist, and lucidly unveils the legacy of England's most mercurial novelist.
