We are using Nginx web server for Oracle ADF WorkBetter hosted demo hosted on DigitalOcean cloud server. Nginx helps to serve web application content fast and offer improved performance. One of the important tuning options - content compression, Nginx does this job well and is simple to setup.
Content compression doesn't provide direct runtime performance, a browser would run the same code, doesn't matter it was compressed or not. But it brings improved perceived performance (which is very important), network time is way faster, because of reduced content size. Oracle ADF is a server-side framework, each request would bring content from the server - faster this content comes, means better application performance.
1. Content Compression = OFF
Let see stats, when no content compression applied (using our Oracle ADF WorkBetter hosted demo).
