Java Studio Creator 2 performance patch is released - a must for evey Creator user.
By winston on Aug 25, 2006
Performance .. performance .. performance. We heard it and we heard it enough. "Enough is enough" said our Engineering manager, Mark Dey and thus born the Performance tiger team. The primary and only focus of this team is to improve the performance of Sun Java Studio Creator. The team members dropped what ever they are working on for the forth coming releaser, code name shortfin - bundling Creator as a pack for Netbeans 5.5 and jumped on to the band wagon to work on the performance of the current release - Java Studio Creator 2 U1. I had the privilege of leading this team. The patch would not have happened with out the salient efforts of the team engineers Sandip Chitale, Peter Zavadsky, Devananda Jayaram and Marco Walther. These guys are phenomenal.
Having said that, it is the QA team lead by Sakthivel Gopal that made the patch perfect for release. I must mention the excellent contribution from our QA engineers Krystyna Polomski, Sherry Zhou, Lark Fitzgerald, Chary Kanaparthi, Sandeep Jangity, Moumita Nandi and our Russian QA engineers Oleg Khokhlov & Alexey Butenko. With out this team it would be next to impossible to pin point the potential areas otherwise this patch would have broken.
Last but not least, I must mention the over all co-ordination by one of our Project Leads Chau Nguyen to bring these teams together, Mario Ramon to put together the patch processing and Ashvini Mangalvedhekar for taking care of release engineering efforts.
It was a great ride for the past four weeks with lot of ups and downs. But in the end, it was worth a ride when we put together the final results of these efforts (further details).
So, download and enjoy the patch. Note, we are not done yet. This team will continue to keep an eye on performance and memory issues. Above all, it is your, Creator users, inputs that are most valuable for us. So let them keep coming and you can send your comments to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
