Expected NB 6.0 Beta2 Visual Web Application runtime performance boost
By winston on Oct 20, 2007
As you know Netbeans 6.0 Visual Web application uses Project Woodstock JSF components. There were complains that the pages generated with these components were slow while loading. Woodstock team took a harder look at the possibilities of such poor performance. They identified some of the areas where performance could be improved. After fixing those areas, Woodstock team recently announced up to 20-30% boost in page loading. Here are some announced results.
|Example App Page||Dojo .4||Dojo .9||Merged JS and CSS files|
|Requests||Seconds to Load||Requests||Seconds to Load||Requests||Seconds to Load|
You can read more about the announcement at the Woodstock Forum at this message. Since Netbeans 6.0 Beta2 Visual Web would bundle these performance boosted components, you could expect similar performance boost in the Visual Web Application at runtime.
