Java Performance, Lack Thereof, A Follow-Up
October 20, 2008 Leave a comment
I had been having an issue with lack of performance in a Java app, this post tells all.
Over the weekend I decided to just shoot the problem between the eyes with extreme prejudice (bonus points if you get the movie reference), toss out the whole thing and move to a messaging architecture. I should be done in a couple of days, but early tests looks very promising.
Effectively what I decided to do was to do away with pulling data from MySQL entirely, instead having it sent to a queue for processing (hence the messaging.)
