GlassFish Benchmark Results Keep Climbing
By woodjr on Jul 24, 2007
When Eduardo highlighted the excellent SPECjAppServer 2004 results for GlassFish v1 and PostgreSQL, he speculated that "GlassFish v2 should enable a better number (or similar number on cheaper hardware)."
Now, just two weeks later, we have a new SPECjAppServer 2004 result which does use GlassFish v2 (while keeping PostgreSQL 8.2.4 for the DB). Its 813.73 JOPS are about 4.5% better than the 778.14 JOPS obtained in the earlier run with GlassFish v1. And, as Jignesh describes, these new results were obtained using about 33% less hardware. So Eduardo's predication was right on both counts--a better number and cheaper hardware.
