Hands-On High Performance with Spring 5

By: Chintan Mehta, Subhash Shah, Pritesh Shah, Prashant Goswami, Dinesh Radadiya

Overview of this book

While writing an application, performance is paramount. Performance tuning for real-world applications often involves activities geared toward detecting bottlenecks. The recent release of Spring 5.0 brings major advancements in the rich API provided by the Spring framework, which means developers need to master its tools and techniques to achieve high performance applications. Hands-On High Performance with Spring 5 begins with the Spring framework's core features, exploring the integration of different Spring projects. It proceeds to evaluate various Spring specifications to identify those adversely affecting performance. You will learn about bean wiring configurations, aspect-oriented programming, database interaction, and Hibernate to focus on the metrics that help identify performance bottlenecks. You will also look at application monitoring, performance optimization, JVM internals, and garbage collection optimization. Lastly, the book will show you how to leverage the microservice architecture to build a high performance and resilient application. By the end of the book, you will have gained an insight into various techniques and solutions to build and troubleshoot high performance Spring-based applications.

Spring support of JMX

JMX is the standard component in the Java platform. It was first released in J2SE 5.0. Basically, JMX is a set of specifications defined for application and network management. It empowers developers to assign management attributes to the Java objects used in the applications. By assigning management attributes, it makes the Java objects capable of working with network management software in use. It provides a standard way for developers to manage applications, devices, and services.

JMX has a three-layer architecture. The three layers are defined here:

  • The probe or instrumentation layer: This layer contains managed beans. The application resources to be managed are enabled for JMX.
  • The agent or MBeanServer layer: This layer forms the core of the JMX. It works as an intermediary between managed beans and the application.
  • The remote management layer: This...
