A new benchmark for app servers

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.
SPECjAppServer2004 is a completely new benchmark for applications servers. It includes a modified workload, and features that stress more of the capabilities of J2EE 1.3 or later application servers.

It tests performance for a representative J2EE 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.

It was developed by SPEC’s Java subcommittee, which includes BEA, Borland, Darmstadt University of Technology, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, Oracle, Pramati, Sun and Sybase.
