Java Microservices: What do you need to tweak to optimize throughput and response times?

Maarten Smeets 1

Performance tuning usually goes something like followed: a performance problem occurs an experienced person knows what is probably the cause and suggests a specific change baseline performance is determined, the change is applied, and performance is measured again if the performance has improved compared to the baseline, keep the change, […]

ETL using Oracle DBMS_HS_PASSTHROUGH and SQL Server

Harry Dragstra

While I prefer a “loosely coupled architecture” for replication between Oracle and SQL Server, sometimes a direct (database) link cannot be avoided. By using DBMS_HS_PASSTHROUGH for data extraction the 2 other ETL processes (transformation and load) can be configured and administered with more flexibility, providing an almost acceptable level of […]

Doing performance measurements of an OSB Proxy Service by programmatically extracting performance metrics via the ServiceDomainMBean and presenting them as an image via a PowerPoint VBA module

Marc Lameriks 1

This article explains how the process of doing performance measurements of an OSB Proxy Service and presenting them in a “performance analysis document” was partly automated. After running a SoapUI based Test Step (sending a request to the service), extracting the service performance metrics was done by using the ServiceDomainMBean […]

ADF Performance Monitor: Support for EJB/JPA (EclipseLink)

Frank Houweling

Not all Oracle ADF projects are built with ADF Business Components (ADF BC). Some organizations prefer to use EJB/JPA (EclipseLink) instead of ADF BC. The EclipseLink JPA provides developers with a standards based Object-Relational persistence solution. The application still reflects the Model-View-Controller architecture. In this case the model is provided by […]

Last week I presented at the  UKOUG’14 conference on instrumenting, analyzing, & tuning the performance of Oracle ADF applications. Instrumentation refers to an ability to monitor or measure the level of a product’s performance, to diagnose errors and to write trace information. Instrumenting gives visibility and insight of what is happening inside the […]

ADF Performance Monitor: Measuring Slow Network Time

Recently I was implementing the ADF Performance Monitor at a customer site and doing a detailed performance analysis. This customer had severe (and less severe) performance problems but was unable to pinpoint the exact pain points. Frequently, end-users were complaining because they were experiencing first a very good performance (response times […]
