Benchmark Description

SPECjbb2005 (Java Business Benchmark) measures the performance of aJava implemented application tier (server-side Java). The benchmark isbased on the order processing in a wholesale supplier application. Theperformance of the user tier and the database tier are not measured inthis test. The metrics given are number of SPECjbb2005 bops (BusinessOperations per Second) and SPECjbb2005 bops/JVM (bops per JVMinstance).

Key Points and Best Practices

  • Enhancements to the JVM had a major impact on performance
