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. For example, we used Sequelize for the JavaScript MySQL tests. For example, servlet-raw is using raw JDBC. Code examples. About What we do Portfolio People Blog Contact. You are viewing a single entry.

10 Simple Actions Will Inspire More Startup Results

Startup Professionals Musings

In my experience, there is no magic gene involved, just simple good habits executed consistently and convincingly until everyone around you in a startup wants to follow your example. This leading by example is easy to say, but not so easy to put into action. Most leadership gurus, including John Baldoni, have provided generic recipes, like his book from a while back, “ Lead By Example: 50 Ways Great Leaders Inspire Results.”

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. These checks are rigid--failing implementations for using the wrong letter case in their JSON encoding, for example--but ultimately a valuable tool to ensure fairness.

Everything about Java 8

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.

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 applications that match users based on non-trivial math, or make recommendations based on some amount of analysis of past and present behavior, or process large documents on the users’ behalf. “It was running fine.”

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. We''ve just posted Round 6, which includes several more developer community-provided framework test implementations: Beego, Dart, Hapi, Jester, Luminus, Nancy, Yaf, Plack, Play-Slick, and Undertow.

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.

Mangling JSON numbers

TechEmpower

We happen to use JAX-RS in our example code. If we have a long (64-bit integer) that we serialize into JSON, we might be in trouble if JavaScript consumes that JSON. JavaScript has the equivalent of double (64-bit floating point) for its numbers, and double cannot represent the same set of numbers as long. If we are not careful, our long is mangled in transit. Consider 2 53 + 1. We can store that number in a long but not a double.

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.

A marginal example was the Intel release of the Pentium Pro and new Pentium II processor to rave reviews – until a math professor found an obscure error in the chip’s code that made a rare floating-point calculation error.
