Session Persistence Performance in BEA WebLogic Server 7.0

The concept of persisting a user session during the interaction with an application server has matured from maintaining hidden HTML fields and toying with URLs to a stable and robust technology under the J2EE framework. This is what is commonly referred to as an HTTP session - a conversation that spans multiple requests between a client and the server. The session could be maintained at the various layers on the application architecture. It could reside on the client, on the presentation layer, in the object layer, or even in the database layer of the application. There are two options for maintaining client sessions when session data resides on the client layer. Session information can be maintained in hidden HTML fields or, alternatively, via the use of cookies, which are maintained on the client. This strategy has some inherent limitations, such as only String val... (more)

Java vs C++ "Shootout" Revisited

Keith Lea writes of the benchmark, on his results page, "I was sick of hearing people say Java was slow, when I know it's pretty fast, so I took the benchmark code for C++ and Java from the now outdated Great Computer Language Shootout and ran the tests myself." Lea used G++ (GCC) 3.3.1 20030930 (with glibc 2.3.2-98) for the C++, with the -O2 flag (for both i386 and i686). He compiled the Java code normally with the Sun Java 1.4.2_01 compiler, and ran it with the Sun 1.4.2_01 JVM. He ran the tests on Red Hat Linux 9 / Fedora Test1 with the 2.4.20-20.9 kernel on a T30 laptop. The laptop "has a Pentium 4 mobile chip, 512MB of memory, a sort of slow disk," he notes. The results he got were that Java is significantly faster than optimized C++ in many cases. "They also show that no one should ever run the client JVM when given the choice," Lea adds. ("Everyone has the c... (more)
