Hello all!!

I need help finding out whats the hardware requirements for an Java Application...how can i find out the amount of memory, HD and cpu the JVM + my application needs? I would like to know too if the hardware specs are really different from jvm to jvm (jese, j2ee, j2me).

I tried to find out but couldnt. Thanks in advance for any help/info.

Regards
Gunnar

That depends on the application.

The JVM will not matter. The application is what drives the requirements.

What application do you wish to run? Have you contacted the vendor?

Wouldn't it be easiest to ask the folks who developed the application?

Estimating what kind of hardware you need for a certain software system is always a difficult task. It depends exactly on what the software does. The developers of the software most likely have some insight into how much memory and processing power the application needs. A good way to find out how much memory and processing power an application really needs is by profiling it - test it while running under a profiler and see how much memory and processing power it is really taking up.
