VeriTest Finds .NET Pet Shop Over Ten Times Faster than Oracle-optimized J2EE Pet Store

VeriTest Finds .NET Pet Shop Over Ten Times Faster than Oracle-optimized J2EE Pet Store

(May 25, 2002) - An audit of the latest Oracle and Microsoft-published performance data for the Java and .NET Pet Shop found the .NET Pet Shop to be over ten times faster than the latest optimized J2EE Pet Store based on the latest Oracle-published benchmark data. The independent auditor, VeriTest, also found serious issues with the Oracle-revised Java Pet Store application and testing methodology, including missing application functionality and flawed benchmark load test settings.

This past March, Oracle published new benchmark data for the Java Pet Store based on a revised implementation of the Sun Java Pet Store 1.1.2. In May, VeriTest, a respected leader in independent software testing invited Oracle, to participate in an independent audit of their published benchmark data. Oracle declined to participate. VeriTest performed an audit of Oracle's data based on the revised Java Pet Store application and Mercury Interactive LoadRunner test scripts Oracle published on their Web site, and found serious flaws that raise questions about Oracle's latest published data.

VeriTest also performed extensive testing of the .Net Pet Shop to verify the original performance data taken using Quest Software Benchmark Factory, as well as performing new .NET tests with Mercury Interactive LoadRunner and Oracle's own published test scripts and data load. The tests were run on the same Compaq Computer Corporation ProLiant 8500 servers as used in the original Microsoft testing. The VeriTest audit shows that:

  1. Oracle's latest published test data using Mercury Interactive LoadRunner is seriously flawed.
  2. Microsoft's original published data using Quest Software Benchmark Factory is accurate but cannot be compared to results taken by Mercury Interactive LoadRunner due to differences in the load test tools.
  3. When tested using Mercury Interactive LoadRunner using Oracle's own test scripts, the .NET Pet Shop performs over 10 times faster than Oracle's Java Pet Store based on Oracle's latest (questionable) published data.

It cannot be overseen or regulated by any one administrator, like a government or bank. Currently, there is no government regulation on them which also means there is no government safeguards over them. Although many are looking at Bitcoin to put money into, it would be wise to proceed with caution. Regular central banks are watching it and deciding whether or not to make them illegal (Criminalize them) and therefore make them worthless and eliminate them as competition. ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are something most have no idea as to what it means and how you utilize it. Where is the "Stamp of Approval" or "Stamp of Legitimacy" on some of these Bitcoin websites (how do you know you are not dealing with a scammer?)
DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality. Sponsors of DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO will benefit from unmatched branding, profile building and lead generation opportunities.
Today we introduced our New York & Silicon Valley combo sponsorship and exhibit opportunities with unmatched pre and post-show promotion. At CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO NY & CA, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
