Performance tuning is indeed 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 by using a quantitative and 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 full range of aspects you need to consider. There are no simple recipes, tips and tricks, or secret algorithms to learn. Performance tuning is a process of defining and determining desired outcomes. And it requires diligence.
