While increasing amount of features usually result in poorer performance and more memory consumption, Eclipse Photon has proven the opposite: The Eclipse Platform got faster and less memory hungry than before. This has been achieved by intensive profiling of multiple use cases and refactorings derived from the analysis.
How can we more easily run performance benchmarks against Java SDKs and analyze and compare results? What information is coming out of some common open-source benchmarks and why might it be interesting? How can you incorporate performance tests into your continuous delivery pipeline? This talk addresses all of these questions and more as it surveys the performance testing story at AdoptOpenJDK and Eclipse OpenJ9.
