Java Performance Tuning: A Conversation With Java Champion Kirk Pepperdine

Posted by hiheiss on July 21, 2008 at 5:30 PM PDT

Here's a recent interview I did with Java
Champion Kirk Pepperdine, a primary contributor
to which is widely regarded as the premier
site for Java performance-tuning information. Kirk has much to say about performance tuning
concepts and misconceptions; database and memory problems; the importance of writing simple,
"dumb" code; tricks he uses to defuse stress when he's called in by a company to solve a problem;
and lots more. Would be great to get your reaction to what he says.
