High-Performance Java Persistence Newsletter, Issue 36
Imagine having a tool that can automatically detect JPA and Hibernate performance issues. Wouldn’t that be just awesome?
Well, Hypersistence Optimizer is that tool! And it works with Spring Boot, Spring Framework, Jakarta EE, Java EE, Quarkus, or Play Framework.
So, enjoy spending your time on the things you love rather than fixing performance issues in your production system on a Saturday night!
Welcome to a new issue of the High-Performance Java Persistence Newsletter in which we share articles, videos, workshops, and StackOverflow answers that are very relevant to any developer who interacts with a database system using Java.
The pick of this edition is this series of articles, which provides a very detailed explanation of the PostgreSQL statement protocol. What I liked is that it explains how the
Simple query and
extended protocols work, how statements are cached on the client and server-side, how generic plans are generated, and what JDBC uses behind the scenes.
If you are using Spring Boot, then you might be interested in learning what’s the best way to configure it via the
application.properties file. If you are curious about this topic, then check out this article.
If you want to know how long a rollback operation will take in MySQL, check out this article, as it provides a function you could use to estimate the rollback duration.
When using a relational database system, most applications stick to the default isolation level. However, whether it’s
READ COMMITTED (e.g., Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL) or
REPEATABLE READ (e.g., MySQL, MariaDB), the default isolation level does not provide a serializable transaction log. If you want to know how to prevent all data anomalies, then it’s very important to understand what Serializability is and how do relational databases implement it.
If you’re using Spring Data, then you have multiple options of checking a record’s existence. However, not all options are efficient, and this article, which is the best option you should use.
Here are the best tweets I posted since the last newsletter:

High-Performance SQL Video Course
I’m very proud to announce to you that I released the High-Performance SQL video course. If you are using a relational database system, this course is going to teach you how to get the most out of it, no matter if you are using Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, or MySQL.
The 14.2 version of PostgreSQL has been released, and it provides various fixes that you might be interested in if you switched to PostgreSQL 14.
