abstract = {This article presents SPECjAppServer2004---the new industry-standard benchmark for measuring the performance and scalability of J2EE hardware and software platforms. SPECjAppServer2004 is a completely new benchmark and not comparable to the SPEC J2EE benchmarks released in late 2002. This article discusses the business domains and workload modeled by the benchmark, as well as the benchmark design and architecture. The author also explains the meaning of the benchmark metrics, discusses the different purposes the benchmark can be used, and provides some links to additional information.},

  abstract = {SPECjbb2005 (Java Server Benchmark) is SPEC's benchmark for evaluating the performance of server side Java. Like its predecessor, SPECjbb2000, SPECjbb2005 evaluates the performance of server side Java by emulating a three-tier client/server system (with emphasis on the middle tier). The benchmark exercises the implementations of the JVM (Java Virtual Machine), JIT (Just-In-Time) compiler, garbage collection, threads and some aspects of the operating system. It also measures the performance of CPUs, caches, memory hierarchy and the scalability of shared memory processors (SMPs). SPECjbb2005 provides a new enhanced workload, implemented in a more object-oriented manner to reflect how real-world applications are designed and introduces new features such as XML processing and BigDecimal computations to make the benchmark a more realistic reflection of today's applications.},
