In the previous post I have shown that the GarbageFirst (G1) collector in Java 7 (and also 8ea) does a reasonable job but cannot reach the GC throughput of the “classic” collectors as soon as old generation collections come about. This article focuses on G1’s ability to control the duration of GC pauses. To this [...]
As mentioned in a first post of this series, Oracle’s GarbageFirst (G1) collector has been a supported option in Java 7 for some time. This post examines in more detail the performance of the G1 garbage collector compared to the other collectors available in the Hotspot JVM. I used benchmark tests for this purpose instead [...]
We are currently experiencing a Geospatial Revolution that changes in how we navigate from A to B and how we search for locations like a specific sight or restaurants nearby. Geospatial search technology provides such information. This article shows how commercial applications can utilize geospatial search, e.g. for real estate search (qualifing real estates by [...]

We recently finished a subproject to integrate our mgm Cosmo insurance software with an external CRM system. Both systems had to exchange XML documents in a reliable and robust manner in order to keep their data in sync. We used Apache Camel as the middleware to handle all the transfers between the Java and .NET [...]
I recently had the opportunity to test and tune the performance of several shop and portal applications built with Java and running on the Sun/Oracle JVM, among them some of the most visited in Germany. In many cases garbage collection is a key aspect of Java server performance. In the following article we take a [...]
