Please help me. I’ve referenced around 700 tools over the years in my newsletters, and the information needs organising and refreshing. I started last year aiming to produce a tool page for each category of tool, and from lack of time have so far only managed three categories – GC Log Analysers, Multi-Tenancy JVMs and Books.
Despite my best intentions to provide you all with a valuable resource of a page for each type of tool, I just don’t have the time. So I’m asking for volunteers who would be willing to maintain the pages. For you as a volunteer, it could offer the prospect of becoming an expert in a particular area of Java performance tooling, you’d have your name and contact details (if desired) at the top of the page as the maintainer, and looking over a small set of tools once every couple of months is all you’d need to do. See those three pages for examples, the updating required is simple, just to a) add a tool if a new one comes a long; b) keep the year of the last update in brackets up to date and the tools sorted in date order so that readers can easily see which are being maintained and; c) remove a tool if it becomes unavailable.

Abstract: The JavaDocs for method Object.hashCode() seems to suggest that the value is somehow related to memory location. However, in this newsletter we discover that there are several different algorithms and that Java 8 has new defaults to […]
