WebSphere Application Server Version 7.0 Performance Highlights

We recently announced WebSphere Application Server V7.0. Over the next week, I will be sharing some of the performance highlights of our teams' work improving existing usage scenarios as well as performance grooving of new V7.0 features. Here are some of the areas I plan to discuss.  Let me know if you'd like to see other areas and I'll work to include them as well.

  • General Java EE
  • Web Services including JAX-WS and WS-* standards support
  • Persistence including EJB3 and JPA
  • Startup Time and Memory Footprint
  • Security including Java SE, Admininstration, Java EE, and new features
  • Java SE Performance
  • Hardware exploitation (64-bit, Multicore, Virtualization)
  • Support for SIP based communication in our convergence sevlet container

Would like to ORB scalability characteristics on 64 bit architectures with large JVM heaps >= 8G.

Anonymous (who asked about Any updates on WAS V7 performance),

Please see the posts on web services, ejb 3.0/jpa, and 64-bit.

I plan to post a few more topics, but took some time off for vacation this week. Stay tuned.

I am just now downloading WebSphere Application Server ND Version 7.0 and will be installing a proof of concept on 64 bit Linux. I am particurlary interested in learning more about the job manager and custom console modules and portlets.

We are currently running 6.1.0.17 and 6.1.0.21.

To claqueur,
For job manager details you can visit WebSphere V7 Infocenter. We have recently published an article on IBM developerworks discussing various topology options in WebSphere V7, one of which is job manager based flexible management topology. The article is part of WebSphere V7 system administration series and is titled New administrative topologies.
Hope this helps.
