On this page we will provide some tips that can improve the performance of your enterprise computing systems and provide a better service to your internal and external customers.

Computer Operations



Become familiar with the Sun Java Enterprise patterns, especially the model, view, controller pattern. Also beware of anti-patterns. Do not include patterns just for the sake of it, become aware of when an application is in danger of using too many patterns.

Never call System.gc() within your enterprise application... we have seen it done.

Maintenance Issues

Ensure that the temp and wstemp directories are kept clean and free of old work files by using scripts launched from cron or Windows scheduled tasks. Deployment failures can be caused by out of date administrative files left in these areas. Keep them tidy!
