By molini on Jul 11, 2007
Check out the latest SPECjAppServer 2004 result published on July 9. This is the highest score, to date, for SPECjAppServer 2004 on a single Sun Fire T2000 application server: 883.66 JOPS@Standard. The Sun Fire T2000 in this case has a 1.4ghz CPU; the application also uses a Sun Fire T2000 running at 1.0ghz for its database tier. This result is 10% higher than the next highest score of 801.70 JOPS@Standard on the same appserver machine. In addition, this result is almost 70% higher than Sun's previous score of 521.42 JOPS@Standard on a Sun Fire T2000, although that Sun Fire T2000 was running at 1.2ghz.
The result reflects improvements in many areas including EJBs, JMS, JSP compilation, Servlet connector and container, connection pooling, CMP 2.1 and more. GFv2 has also improved in areas not covered by SPECjAppServer 2004 like Web Services, EJB 3.0, JSF, JPA and others.
