  • Ehcache

    Ehcache 3.x line

    I decided to start with an overview of what open-source options are currently available. When it comes to the implementation of the on-heap cache mechanism, the options are numerous – there is well known: guava, ehcache, caffeine and many other solutions. However, when I began researching cache mechanisms offering the possibility of storing data outside GC control, I found out that there are very few solutions left. Out of the popular ones, only Terracotta is supported. It seems that this is a very niche solution and we do not have many options to choose from. In terms of less-known projects, I came across Chronicle-Map, MapDB and OHC. I chose the last one because it was created as part of the Cassandra project, which I had some experience with and was curious about how this component worked:

  • Apache JMeter

    Apache JMeter open-source load testing tool for analyzing and measuring the performance of a variety of services

    The test scenario consists of querying for descriptions of different offers. During the test, I will collect data on memory and GC parameters using jConsole. I will run the test scenario using jMeter, which additionally will allow me to measure response times.

  • MapDB

    MapDB provides concurrent Maps, Sets and Queues backed by disk storage or off-heap-memory. It is a fast and easy to use embedded Java database engine.
