Java SE Out of Box Performance: Any interest in a performance comparison?
By dagastine on Sep 21, 2006
Out of box performance, or using no JVM tuning options, has been a focus of Sun HotSpot Engineering for quite some time. Our first major steps came with J2SE 5.0 Ergonomics, and we're taking it further in JDK 6 with many of our performance features enabled by default. I find it quite cool when no tuning yields performance close to or exceeding the best I can muster with command line tuning.
With that, I'd like to publish some "Out of Box" competitive performance comparisions on my blog. As you can imagine this could be a bit of a touchy subject for our competitors. Before I post data I'd like to get a feel of how interesting this would be. So, I'd like to ask for a bit of feedback. Is there interest in a Java SE out of box competitive performance out there? Are there any benchmarks that people would like to see? I was thinking the usual benchmarks I talk about, SPECjbb2005 and SciMark. Any others?
Thanks in advance for the feedback!
