At the start of the new year, I've had one thing and one thing only on my mind. It's a fantasy of sorts. And it involves a device that you rarely need but gives you all the power in the world. The snow plow.
What if, what if for only a moment I wonder, what if I were not at the mercy of others -- to plow the driveway, to plow the parking lot, to plow the street. What if I actually owned a plow and held this power in the palm of my driving mittens ?
I would attach the device to the front of my car. And suddenly in one fell swoop become the most popular person on my street.
A real-world automotive workload. Just like the new SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark. The workload emulates information flow among an automotive dealership, manufacturing domain, supply chain management, and an order/inventory system. This new SPEC benchmark tests performance for a representative Java EE application and each of the components that make up the application environment, including hardware, application server software, JVM software, database software, JDBC drivers, and the system network.
IBM is the very first to publish on this new benchmark. These results
Happy New Year to SPECjEnterprise2010 !
