Any recommendations on tutorials / books that describe how to profile JBoss applications?

The latest version of NetBeans comes with a fancy, robust profiling tool. You can use this tool to profile the application.

Interesting, although it is limited to the web side of things - all the backend will still have to profiled separately.

Thanks

Not sure what you mean by this. JAMon can monitor jdbc, ejb, log4j, and http all without you having to make code changes. That should give you a very good understanding of many aspects of your program.

When I briefly looked at the web site the other day, it seemed to indicate that it was aimed at monitoring HTTP responses. But if it can be used to monitor jdbc, ejb, JMX etc., then it may be just what I am looking for. I'll try to get time this weekend to play with it.

Thanks for the link.

I originally gave a direct link to the http monitoring section. Go to www.jamonapi.com and search for jdbc, ejb, http, and log4j and you should find detail sections on how to monitor all of them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
