Many of us on this blog talk about what IBM is doing to improve the Java database applications space, both from an application development and database administration point of view.
Here is the way I like to categorize the areas in which these improvements are seen:
- A comprehensive monitoring capability that gives you a broad, yet contextual perspective on database and application performance, and early warning of emergent problems.
- Better insight into applications, and the ability to stabilize, and improve resource utilization in a non invasive way
- Building performance into the applications early on in the development cycle.
Performance Expert with Extended Insight, pureQuery, Optim Development Studio, and Query Tuner are all important components
of the solution that we call the Java Acceleration Solution
. But if you are a big picture person and want to see how these components work together, we put together this 15 minute video video
on developerWorks that we hope you'll find entertaining as well as giving you an example of this bigger picture as you follow along with our friends at the fictional Great Outdoors Company.
By the way, we also developed some hands on lab material that walks you through these scenarios so that you can explore, and try it out yourself. If you're interested, we'll be offering this as a lab at the Information on Demand Conference
in Las Vegas this year. if you are attending this year, and would like to try it out, be sure to look for the Java Acceleration Solution Hands-on Lab (HOL-1276) in the Integrated Data Management Track of IOD.
