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.
Both JProbe and OptimizeIt are very good. Neither is open source. Neither is inexpensive. If you find such an open source project, please pass it on. I turned to books. I like Java Performance Tuning by Jack Shirazi Java Platform Performance : Strategies and Tactics by Steve Wilson, et al and Java Performance and Scalability by Dov Bulka Each has a somewhat different focus and approach. Each benefitted me and my code. HTH, Joe
