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.

AOP proxies

It is the proxy pattern that made Spring AOP able to decouple crosscutting concerns from the core application's business logic or functionalities. The proxy pattern is a structural design pattern included in a book by the Gang of Four (GoF). In practice, the proxy pattern creates different object wrapping out of an original object without changing the behavior of the original object to allow intercepting its method call, and the outside world would feel they are interacting with the original object and not a proxy.

JDK dynamic proxies and CGLIB proxies

The proxy in Spring AOP can be created in two ways:

  • JDK proxy (dynamic proxy): The JDK proxy creates a new proxy object by implementing interfaces of the target...
