AJAX Performance and Scalability
You know AJAX can improve Web application usability, but only if designed properly. How do you deploy and manage responsive rich client networked applications that scale? If you are using services from multiple sources, how can you identify bottlenecks?
In this session, we look at the architectural changes implied by AJAX and other networked rich clients, with an overview of the major technologies and how they impact applications. You will learn about the key performance, scalability and reliability challenges as well as how to avoid them. We then review how noninvasive monitoring and JMX management data can be integrated to better understand and quickly resolve production problems. You will learn how to integrate low overhead effective monitoring without needing to "bake in" instrumentation up front. You will also learn how to troubleshoot problems in Java-based applications quickly, with illustrations of how these apply to common issues in AJAX applications.
