Following s1p tweets, I found an interesting one this morning.
That’s why I enjoyed this repository today.
When I tried to build it with
$ ./mvnw clean install, it failed. Reading the error message, I modified one line and the build succeeded.
Then I ran the benchmark with
$ (cd benchmarks/; java -jar target/benchmarks.jar). But it showed a strange result.
petclinicLatest(Precompute)Thin results were too slow.
I didn’t know what the
Thin means. Then I reached to https://github.com/dsyer/spring-boot-thin-launcher and understood it’s an experimental library to make the jar file thin and download jars when it starts for the first time.
I read the source code of the benchmark module to know how it runs the target, and added
--thin.debug=true to see the debug output.
java -Xmx128m -Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/./urandom \ -XX:TieredStopAtLevel=1 \ -jar petclinic-latest/target/petclinic-latest-1.4.2-thin.jar \ --thin.debug=true \ --server.port=0
I forgot to take a memo, but it showed jar resolution log. I noticed the petclinic-latest loaded some SNAPSHOT version libraries.
I guess every time it would check the SNAPSHOT version of the maven repository. So I modified the pom file to use RELEASE version.
Though it would be different from the original aim to compare the SNAPSHOT version speed, I enjoyed the repository, and I would like to understand the details of this repository especially Flux benchmarks which is on the tweet picture.
