Java Performance Tuning & Optimization

Java is one of the most in demand and highest paying programming language. Java is a very popular language and JVM is a popular platform to build high performance programs in Java. This course will be your one-stop guide to optimize the performance of your Java applications.

Is your Java service slower than you would like; consuming too many system resources or lagging in performance as load increases? In this course, Java Performance Tuning, you will learn how to maximize the performance of Java applications. First, you will discover tools and techniques for analyzing the performance of your application and troubleshooting performance issues. Next, you will learn about the JVM internals that influence performance and how to tune them. Finally, you will gain best practices for writing high performing application code. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to build and run highly performant Java applications in production.

This three day Java Performance Tuning training teaches performance tuning concepts applicable to the Java programming language. Learn the conceptual background for Java garbage collection, how it applies to Java garbage collectors on the Hotspot JVM, and more.
