This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I am involved in developing a web application in which data is collected in 8-10 jsp pages(forms) and finally stored in database through session bean using container managed transaction. There will be about 25 inserts on 10 different tables in a transaction. Expected traffic is about 50 submissions per day only. Considering above scenario, do you think I should be worried about any performance issues related to database transactions. The database we are using is Sybase. Thanks in advance.
No. If you expected all 50 at exactly the same time you might experience some delay, but still no problems. However, load testing is a science, not an art; I would suggest you have a brief go with OpenSTA so that you know how much traffic your site can bear. - Peter
