Integrating Profiler with Various J2EE Web/Application Servers

For step-by-step instructions on setting up some popular web and application servers to run Profiler, see Integrating Profiler with various J2EE Web/Application Servers.

Profiling Freeform Projects

In a Freeform project, you have to write your own Ant target to run a project in the profiler. Two Ant tasks are available in this Profiler milestone release. For more, see How to setup projects with existing Ant script for profiling.

Profiler Compatibility with Various Java VMs and Operating Systems

The Profiler currently runs on just one Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and there are some restrictions on the operating systems that it can run on. For more, see Compatibility with various Java VMs and Operating Systems

JFluid Profiling Technology

NetBeans Profiler integrates the JFluid profiling technology, which is being developed by Sun, into the NetBeans IDE. NetBeans Profiler provides a powerful and flexible profiling solution that is tightly integrated into the IDE workflow.

As the size and complexity of Java applications grow, optimizing the applications becomes increasingly important and keeping their performance at the required level becomes progressively difficult. If application profiling is to become a natural part of the development work cycle, the process of application profiling needs to be easy-to-use and as unobtrusive as possible - and the JFluid technology, with dynamic bytecode instrumentation at its heart, suits this goal perfectly.

For more on JFluid technology, see

Mailing Lists

There are several ways you can get involved in the Profiler project:

We will also be setting up a small, limited user forum for users who are willing to work closer with the development team throughout the development cycle, to help shape the profiler to the fields of people who will actually use it in the end. If you would be interested in participating, send e-mail to
