Coding and testing are often considered separate areas of expertise. In this comprehensive guide, author and Java expert Scott Oaks takes the approach that anyone who works with Java should be equally adept at understanding how code behaves in the JVM, as well as the tunings likely to help its performance. You’ll gain in-depth knowledge of Java application performance, using the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the Java platform, including the language and API. Developers and performance engineers alike will learn a variety of features, tools, and processes for improving the way Java 7 and 8 applications perform. Apply four principles for obtaining the best results from performance testing Use JDK tools to collect data on how a Java application is performing Understand the advantages and disadvantages of using a JIT compiler Tune JVM garbage collectors to affect programs as little as possible Use techniques to manage heap memory and JVM native memory Maximize Java threading and synchronization performance features Tackle performance issues in Java EE and Java SE APIs Improve Java-driven database application performance

* Expanded and revised in light of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 4 release in April 2005, this book offers detailed coverage of GCC's somewhat daunting array of options and features and includes several chapters devoted to its support for languages like C, C++, Java, Objective-C, and Fortran. * Though targeting beginner and intermediate developers, this book goes well beyond basic compiler usage, combining instruction of GCC's advanced features and utilities (authconf, libtool, and gprof) with key coding techniques, such as profiling and optimization to show how to build and manage enterprise-level applications. * This is an enormous market. GCC is the defacto compiler collection for hundreds of thousands of open source projects worldwide, a wide variety of commercial development projects, and is the standard compiler for academic programs.

The ONLY complete, up-to-date guide to all aspects of Java performance • •The first one-stop guide to identifying, isolating, and fixing Java performance issues on multicore and multiprocessor processor platforms - from two of Sun's leading Java performance experts. •Includes crucial new insights into microbenchmarking found nowhere else. •Contains up-to-the-minute coverage of Java optimization, including migration of older applications. Given Java's ubiquity and indispensability, Java software performance is of crucial importance to millions of developers worldwide. The emergence of multi-core systems and the evolution of the Java platform give developers many new opportunities to optimize performance. Now, three of Sun's leading Java performance experts have written the first start-to-finish guide to optimizing Java performance in today's multi-core systems. Java Performance gives developers, designers, and architects all the information they need to leverage Java's performance and scalability abilities on any modern multicore or multiprocessor system. This book's end-to-end coverage addresses all these topics: monitoring and profiling; the effective use of garbage collection and other language features; adaptive and platform-specific tuning; techniques for maximizing scalability; and much more. The authors' extensive benchmarking coverage includes an indispensable introduction to effective microbenchmarks - including guidance on avoiding the common microbenchmarking mistakes that mislead developers into writing badlyperforming software. The book also contains a complete section on Java performance enhancement, including opportunities and challenges associated with migrating software from Java 1.4.2 and Java 5 - issues that more and more Java developers are now facing.

Imagine what you could do if scalability wasn't a problem. With this hands-on guide, you’ll learn how the Cassandra database management system handles hundreds of terabytes of data while remaining highly available across multiple data centers. This expanded second edition—updated for Cassandra 3.0—provides the technical details and practical examples you need to put this database to work in a production environment. Authors Jeff Carpenter and Eben Hewitt demonstrate the advantages of Cassandra’s non-relational design, with special attention to data modeling. If you’re a developer, DBA, or application architect looking to solve a database scaling issue or future-proof your application, this guide helps you harness Cassandra’s speed and flexibility. Understand Cassandra’s distributed and decentralized structure Use the Cassandra Query Language (CQL) and cqlsh—the CQL shell Create a working data model and compare it with an equivalent relational model Develop sample applications using client drivers for languages including Java, Python, and Node.js Explore cluster topology and learn how nodes exchange data Maintain a high level of performance in your cluster Deploy Cassandra on site, in the Cloud, or with Docker Integrate Cassandra with Spark, Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Solr, and Lucene

Mac OS X, Apple's newest operating system for the Macintosh platform, is profoundly different from its earlier versions because of its similarity to the UNIX operating system. For developers writing software for OS X this means adjusting to two new environments to create applications and to access the enhanced features of the new OS, Cocoa and Carbon. Cocoa is an object-oriented API in which all future OS X programs will be written. Carbon is a transitional technology allowing compatibility of applications written for earlier versions of the Mac OS with Mac OS X. Mac OS X Developer's Guide focuses equally on Cocoa and Carbon, guiding the reader through these technologies and showing how to write applications in both. It is the first book for Mac OS X developers written for those who are already working on applications, as well as new developers just getting started. It starts off describing the new OS and its development tools then focuses on specific programming issues, providing tips on making the transition from classic Mac OS code to Mac OS X. * A guide for developers already writing applications as well as new developers just getting started * Focuses equally on both Cocoa and Carbon environments * Provides tips on transitioning from writing code for classic Mac OS to OS X * References Apple online materials extensively, to keep developers up to speed on changes
