SPECjbb2005(TM): Next Generation JVM Server Performance Benchmark
By dagastine on Jun 16, 2005
SPECjbb2005(TM) was released today. This is the next generation JVM server benchmark and a follow-on to the popular SPECjbb2000 benchmark. SPECjbb2005 was developed by SPEC’s Java subcommittee, with contributions from BEA, Darmstadt University of Technology, HP, IBM, Intel and Sun. http://www.spec.org/jbb2005/press/release.html I represent Sun at SPEC and was the contributing developer working on this benchmark from Sun. As you can imagine, I'm very happy to finally see this benchmark out the door. I would like to congratulate the other contributing developers from the companies listed above, great work Allan, Elena, Sam, Stefan and Veeru. With the release SPECjbb2005 comes the inevitable demise of SPECjbb2000(TM). Now, the dates when SPECjbb2000 have not been decided, but alas the release of a new benchmark does make the predecessors retirement imminent. Good riddance I say, I'm sick of optimizing System.arraycopy! Stay tuned for benchmark results..
