By Joel Murach

This booklet teaches easy methods to improve Java functions on the expert point. It starts off by way of exhibiting the way to code, attempt, and debug daily enterprise purposes that gained t crash. It provides object-oriented good points like periods, inheritance, interfaces, and polymorphism in a manner that s either comprehensible and necessary within the actual world...perspective that s frequently lacking in Java education. It offers crucial Java abilities akin to operating with information forms, keep watch over statements, arrays, collections, generics, enumerations, exceptions, threads, Swing parts, applets, and textual content and binary documents. It covers new Java SE 6 positive aspects akin to new JDBC positive aspects, the StAX XML API, and the integrated Derby database. And it s all performed within the precise Murach variety that has been education specialist programmers for greater than 30 years.

How long does it take to execute a func‐ tion? How long to fetch a configuration from disk? How long to start up or shut down? These questions can be attacked (clumsily) with ridiculously simple instruments. Isaac Newton measured the gravitational constant by timing falling objects against his heartbeat. ” to get approximate seconds. A digital wristwatch with a stopwatch function was once de rigueur for computer geeks, and not just for the fashion state‐ ment. In the embedded world, hardware-savvy developers have nifty instruments at their disposal, including frequency counters and oscilloscopes that can time even short routines accurately.

There are not a lot of statistics in this book, something for which I do not apol‐ ogize. The point of this book is to help the developer find performance improvements that are dramatic enough to outweigh any question of their value. Such an improve‐ ment may still depend on factors like the operating system and compiler, so it may not have much effect on another system or at another time. But changes that are dra‐ matic almost never bite with reduced performance when the developers port their code to a new system.

Even if heroic coding or black magic reduces the run time of function g to zero, it is still in the unimportant 90%. The overall performance improvement is still 11%, to two decimal places. Amdahl’s Law says that even a really successful optimization isn’t valuable if the optimized code doesn’t account for much of the overall program’s run time. The lesson of Amdahl’s Law is that, when your colleague comes to a meeting all excited that he knows how to make some calculation run 10 times faster, it doesn’t necessarily mean all your perfor‐ mance troubles are over.
