Framework Benchmarks

TechEmpower

We want this test to require repeated requests to an external service (MySQL or MongoDB, for example) so that we exercise the frameworks data mapping code. For example, on the Java platform, Jackson was used for frameworks that do not provide a serializer. Code examples.

Frameworks Round 2

TechEmpower

For example: Making 100000 requests to [link]. For example: play-scala ✓ Another update is planned for next week. Last week, we posted the results of benchmarking several web application development and frameworks. The response was tremendous.

Framework Benchmarks Round 9

TechEmpower

For example, a larger number of response headers might mean slightly fewer responses sent per second. For example, we are using MySQL 5.5 For example, platforms that use process-level concurrency scaled to a large number of processor cores quite well.

Fika Ventures raises $76M to fund the growing LA tech ecosystem

Everything about Java 8

TechEmpower

The List interface is an example. Here are a few examples of lambdas: Comma-separated list of inputs with specified types on the left, a block with a return on the right: (int x, int y) -> { return x + y; }. To give a couple of concrete, valid examples: Comparator c = (a, b) -> Integer.compare(a.length(), b.length()); A Comparator 's compare method takes two strings as input, and returns an int. The sum method in the example above is a terminal operation.

We want this test to require repeated requests to an external service (MySQL or MongoDB, for example) so that we exercise the framework''s data mapping code. For example, on the Java platform, Jackson was used for frameworks that do not provide a serializer. Code examples.

Think about Performance Before Building a Web Application

TechEmpower

We don’t know just how often this occurs, but judging from the calls we get there are lots of anecdotal examples. These are applications that, for example, expect to see large data or complex algorithmic work from day one. Examples would be intranet or special-purpose B2B applications.

Framework Benchmarks Round 12

TechEmpower

For example, Slim's performance in the JSON test and Laravel's performance in the Fortunes test both approximately doubled versus Round 11 with PHP 5. Round 12 of the ongoing Web Framework Benchmarks project is now available! A race against the clock.

Frameworks Round 6

TechEmpower

For example, in the multiple query test, Revel currently considerably exceeds Go. July marks the fourth month of our ongoing project measuring the performance of web application frameworks and platforms.

Can you defend your pricing niche against your competition?

High-profile entrepreneurs and investors, Peter Thiel, for example , have left. Of Benchmark’s 10 most recent investments, for example, eight were based in SF, according to Crunchbase.

Framework Benchmarks Round 13

TechEmpower

For example, our new physical application server has twice as many HT cores as the previous environment, but the CPUs are older, so there is an interesting balance of higher concurrency but potentially lower throughput. Round 13 of the ongoing Web Framework Benchmarks project is here!

Framework Benchmarks Round 14

TechEmpower

The final capture of differences between Round 13 to Round 14 is an example. For example, if a contributor updates the Postgres JDBC driver for the full spectrum of JVM frameworks, the original contributors of those frameworks will be notified by mention-bot.

Efficient multiple-stream concatenation in Java

TechEmpower

For example, it interacts poorly with infinite streams. I want to combine the elements of multiple Stream instances into a single Stream. What's the best way to do this? This article compares a few different solutions. Stream.concat(a, b). The JDK provides Stream.concat(a, b) for concatenating two streams. void exampleConcatTwo () {. Stream a = Stream. of ( "one" , "two" ); Stream b = Stream. of ( "three" , "four" ); Stream out = Stream. concat ( a , b ); out. forEach ( System.

EnumSet and EnumMap

TechEmpower

I recommend this approach: Check whether the characteristics of the default spliterator are correct for your collection (often times the defaults are too conservative — for example, EnumSet 's spliterator is currently missing the ORDERED , SORTED , and NONNULL characteristics). The EnumSet.allOf(elementType) method is a great example. Take RegularEnumSet.equals(object) for example. This article discusses java.util.EnumSet. and java.util.EnumMap.
