A high-performance data access layer must resonate with the underlying database system. Knowing the inner workings of a relational database and the data access frameworks in use can make the difference between a high-performance enterprise application and one that barely crawls.
This book is a journey into Java data access performance tuning. From connection management, to batch updates, fetch sizes and concurrency control mechanisms, it unravels the inner workings of the most common Java data access frameworks.
The first part aims to reduce the gap between application developers and database administrators. For this reason, it covers both JDBC and the database fundamentals that are of paramount importance when reducing transaction response times.
The second part demonstrates how you can take advantage of JPA and Hibernate without compromising application performance.
The third part is dedicated to jOOQ and its powerful type-safe querying capabilities, like window functions or common table expressions.
The electronic book is available in three formats: PDF, ePUB, and MOBI (Kindle).

I well remember reading this book on a longer train ride through Japan a couple of years ago. Great book, thanks @vlad_mihalcea for the copy. Get your own if you have not read it, brilliant book! Looking forward to rereading some chapters! pic.twitter.com/ZaqL4txXXI— Rafael Winterhalter (@rafaelcodes) October 9, 2018
Enjoy reading it!

Check out my presentations at Voxxed Days Bucharest and Devoxx France. You’ll get the chance to learn some tips about tuning your data access layer.
If you liked the videos, I bet you are going to love the book as well. There are way more topics in the book than I can squeeze in a one-hour conference presentation.
Just finished High-Performance Java Persistence by @vlad_mihalcea. Lots of extracts been underlined to check them later in our applications. Also, nice ideas to explore further and discuss with the team.— Miguel Martín-Forero (@lasneyx) April 1, 2018
Mine too! We already followed many of the techniques correctly but the book helped us implement many more and allowed us to improve them. Really great book. I read it thrice, just completed 3rd time last week 🙂— Amit Mendapara (@cristatus) November 23, 2018
I'm currently reading High Performance Java Persistence on my way to Krakow. What a gem!— Pedro Tavareλ (@ordepdev) June 20, 2017
@vlad_mihalcea Really enjoying reading High Performance Java Persistence.... See Java persistence in a new light... 🙂 🙂— Maharshi Dutta (@i_maharshi) September 27, 2017
Thanks @vlad_mihalcea for your advanced insights into JPA and Hibernate with your book High-Performance Java Persistence. Lazy loading of JPA attributes was one of the coolest hints. I made a small demo with Spring Boot: https://t.co/cEHaNAj0xP @Hibernate @springboot— Philip Riecks (@rieckpil) June 24, 2018
I'm only halfway through and I'm already experiencing a huge performance boost. Money well spent 🙂— Christoph Gewehr 💻 (@cgew85) August 29, 2016
Thanks @vlad_mihalcea for the detailed answer, I highly recommend the book "High-Performance Java Persistence" its really a must-read 👍🏻— Sumayah Bawazeer (@sumaymb) November 6, 2017
