SPEC Releases Java Enterprise Benchmark
The Standard Performance Evaluation Corp. (SPEC) has released SPECjEnterprise2010, a new benchmark that measures full-system performance for Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application servers, databases and supporting infrastructure.
SPECjEnterprise2010 was developed by SPEC's Java subcommittee, which includes AMD, HP, IBM, Intel, Oracle, Red Hat, SAP, and Sun Microsystems.
SPECjEnterprise2010 includes a real-world workload and features that stress the capabilities of Java EE 5 or later application servers, databases, and supporting software infrastructure and hardware systems.
The new benchmark tests performance for a representative Java EE application and each of the components that make up the application environment, including hardware, application server software, JVM software, database software, JDBC drivers, and the system network. For the first time in a standardized benchmark, SPECjEnterprise2010 quantifies performance for the web services interface and JPA ORM engines.
The SPECjEnterprise2010 workload emulates information flow among an automotive dealership, manufacturing domain, supply chain management, and an order/inventory system. Load drivers in SPECjEnterprise2010 access the application through a web layer (HTML/HTTP) for the automotive dealership and through web services and Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs) for the manufacturing domain.
Performance is measured by a metric called EjOPS (jEnterprise Operations Per Second). The metric is derived by adding the operations per second in the dealer domain to the work orders per second in the manufacturing domain.
SPECjEnterprise2010 is available immediately from SPEC for $2,000.
