Spring Boot performance tuning

Introduction While developing a Spring Boot application is rather easy, tuning the performance of a Spring Boot application is a more challenging task, as, not only it requires you to understand how the Spring framework works behind the scenes, but you have to know what is the best way to use the underlying data access framework, like Hibernate for instance. In a previous article, I showed you how easily to optimize the performance of the Petclinic demo application. However, by default, the Petclinic Spring Boot application uses the in-memory HSQLDB database, which… Read More

Tuning Spring Petclinic JPA and Hibernate configuration with Hypersistence Optimizer

Introduction In this article, we are going to see how we can tune the performance of the Spring Petclinic application using Hypersistence Optimizer. Now, while you can manually analyze your data access layer to make sure that JPA and Hibernate are properly configured, it’s much better if you can automate this task. That’s because new entities might be mapped in the future, and you want to make sure that the same performance-specific rules are consistently applied on every commit. Hypersistence Optimizer allows you to automatically detect JPA and Hibernate issues during development,… Read More
