After identifying affected components, testers can drill down to identify and report performance problems in specific lines of code and, where necessary, reduce the cost of developing, deploying, and operating these systems.
"Performance of J2EE systems is very difficult to diagnose and this product simplifies the testing process," by providing easily understood information about how time and resources are being spent in a multitiered Java application, Borland director of product management and marketing Bill Pataky.
The multitiered nature of Java applications involves using elements such as Java Server Pages, Enterprise Java Beans and database calls. "It's very difficult to measure where time is being spent in these systems."
A feature called Automatic Application Quality Analyzer provides predictive performance analysis by looking at how code is written around J2EE components. Overall performance is viewed through an interface called J2EE Systems Dashboard.
Meta Group analyst Thomas Murphy said the product would provide J2EE developers with vital testing capabilities.
ServerTrace extends the Optimizeit Suite product line by providing application performance testing. Before it had focused on providing profiles into code.
Optimizeit ServerTrace starts in price at $20,000 (£12,427) for a single server licence.
