System performance problems usually appear at inconvenient times — like when a system is about to ship, or at peak load times critical to the business. To be prepared for these situations, you need to understand the factors that affect Java performance, and to be ready with strategies that will help you to understand and locate performance problems.
To manage the complex jigsaw of factors that decide the overall performance of a system, you need both theoretical knowledge and practical experience. To combine these, you can’t beat the experience of practical experimentation used to reinforce learning, under classroom guidance from experienced performance specialists. That’s why we pack what we know about Java performance – measurement and analysis techniques, testing strategies, and system tuning – into our course on Performance Analysis and Testing.
