BEA Ships WebLogic JRockit 8.0, Foundation of the World's Fastest, Most Flexible Application Infrastructure

(February 21, 2003) - BEA Systems, Inc. has just announced the general availability of BEA WebLogic JRockit 8.0, as well as recent benchmark results utilizing systems with Intel Xeon processors that confirm BEA's position as the owner of the world's fastest JVM. As the foundation of the industry's top-speed Java platform, the BEA WebLogic Enterprise Platform, BEA and its JRockit technology continue to prove that enterprise customers can build a cost-effective, flexible application infrastructure without compromising performance.

BEA WebLogic JRockit 8.0 is the first release of a standalone JVM optimized for the Intel Itanium 2 processor. In addition to enhanced support for the IA-32 architecture and further optimization for the BEA WebLogic Enterprise Platform, BEA WebLogic JRockit 8.0 also delivers more robust features to increase productivity. For example, JRockit's improved profiling and debugging interfaces (JVMPI and JVMDI) can allow developers to better optimize application performance and quickly locate and resolve application issues. BEA WebLogic JRockit's implementations of these interfaces are optimized to work with BEA WebLogic Workshop as well as third-party development and profiling tools, including Intel VTune Performance Analyzer. The Intel VTune Performance Analyzer supports the BEA WebLogic JRockit virtual machine to allow software developers to identify bottlenecks in their Java code.

Newly reported benchmark results for WebLogic JRockit give BEA top industry ratings for performance on a variety of cost-effective hardware and operating system combinations. Running the SPECjbb2000 benchmark, a benchmark that measures the performance of servers running typical Java business applications, BEA WebLogic JRockit achieved the number one and number two results on 4-way server systems running Windows and Linux. BEA WebLogic JRockit also achieved the number one result on the SPECjvm98 benchmark, which measures the performance of JVMs on client computers. (For complete details on benchmark results, see the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) Web site at www.spec.org/.)

BEA WebLogic JRockit 8.0 is available immediately for free download at http://commerce.bea.com/downloads/weblogic_jrockit.jsp.

I tried 7.0 with our VoiceXML interpreter several months back and it ran substantially faster than the other JVMs (Microsoft, Sun, IBM). But it always crashed after processing 4,000 to 10,000 simulated phone calls. I'm eager to see if 8.0 has solved the stability issue(s). It'd be great if it were faster too.

We switched from Sun JVM to JRocket to fix a crashing issue and got a great performance boost as a bonus. Version 7.0 was very stable and fast, if 8.0 is faster I can't wait to give it a run.

Maybe JRockit is the fastest VM for running WebLogic on Xeon, but on e.g. the VolanoMark benchmark JRockit 7.0 (also claimed by BEA to be world fastest) loses completely to IBM JRE 1.3.1.

My company currently is shipping a commerical product based-on Weblogic on multiple platforms including Intel. It will be nice to see how this will improve the performance of our product.
