BEA Achieves Server-Side Java Benchmark Success With JRockit

Fastest Per-CPU Results of a JVM for Server Side Applications

"JRockit has proven to be the world's fastest Java Virtual Machine for server side applications running on Intel," said Guy Churchward, general manager, Java Runtime Products Group, BEA Systems, as BEA yesterday announced SPECjbb2005 benchmark results which show that JRockit has provided fastest per-CPU performance of a Java Virtual Machine for Server Side Applications running on Intel hardware.

SPECjbb2005 was developed by the Java subcommittee of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) - a non-profit group of computer vendors, system integrators, universities, research organizations, publishers, and consultants - and the benchmark's workload represents an order processing application for a wholesale supplier. Systems integrators and end users use the benchmark to evaluate performance of hardware and software aspects of Java Virtual Machine servers. Software vendors can use it to evaluate the efficiency of their JVMs, just-in-time compilers (JITs), garbage collectors, thread implementations and operating systems.

Using a Dell PowerEdge SC1425 with two 64-bit Intel Xeon 3.6GHz processors and 8192MB RAM, BEA JRockit 5.0 R25.2.0 was able to perform 24,208 operations per second.

"We continue to set the bar for Java performance ahead of our competitors and deliver innovation that our customers have come to expect from BEA," Churchward added.

SPECjbb2005 is implemented as a Java 5.0 application emulating a 3-tier system with emphasis on the middle tier. All three tiers are implemented within the same JVM (though the benchmark may spawn several JVM instances).

No! Comparisons to either would be a SERIOUS violation of SPEC's run and reporting rules and of TPC's "fair use policy." Violations are subject to penalties.

Are SPECjbb2005 results comparable to results for either SPECjbb2000 or TPC-C?
