In this PurePerformance episode, Stefano Doni (Akamas CTO) illustrates how some established industry approaches and beliefs about Java Tuning are actually myths:

1) Garbage Collector tuning: do the industry guidelines and metrics always lead to better application performance?

2) Tradeoff among latency, throughput, footprint: is there a way to improve these aspects
at the same time?

3) JVM tuning or not: is it worth tuning the JVM, or is it good enough for ensuring better performance to simply use the latest and greatest JVM?

4) JVM tuning once for all: is it really a good practice to copy & paste known “good” VM configurations across different applications?
