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.

Monitoring and managing Tomcat with JMX

Java Management Extension (JMX) provides a powerful mechanism to monitor and manage Java applications. It can be enabled in Tomcat to monitor threads, CPU usage, and heap memory, and to configure MBeans. Spring provides JMX support out of the box, and we can use it to easily integrate our Spring application into JMX architecture.

JMX support provides the following core features:

  • Easy and flexible support for controlling the management interface of beans
  • Declarative support for exposing MBeans over remote connectors
  • Automatic registration of Spring beans as JMX MBean
  • Simplified support to proxy both local and remote MBean resources

JMX functionality has three levels:

  • Instrumentation level: This level contains the components and resources that are represented by one or more Java beans, which are known as managed beans, or MBean.
  • Agent level...
