  abstract = {Web Services are increasingly used to enable loosely coupled integration among heterogeneous systems but are perceived as a source of severe performance degradation. This paper looks at the impact on system performance when introducing Web Service interfaces to an originally tightly coupled application. Using two implementation variants of Sun's Java Pet Store application, one based strictly on the J2EE platform and the other implementing some interfaces as Web Services, performance is compared in terms of the achieved overall throughput, response times and latency.},

@inproceedings{KoBu2003-CMG-PerfModeling_J2EEApps,
  abstract = {Modern J2EE applications are typically based on highly distributed architectures comprising multiple components deployed in a clustered environment. This makes it difficult for deployers to estimate the capacity of the deployment environment needed to guarantee that Service Level Agreements are met. This paper looks at the different approaches to this problem and discusses the difficulties that arise when one tries to apply them to large, real-world systems. The authors study a realistic J2EE application (the SPECjAppServer2002 benchmark) and show how analytical models can be exploited for capacity planning.},

@inproceedings{KoBu2003-ISPASS-ModelingUsingQPNs,
  abstract = {In this paper we show how Queuing Petri Net (QPN) models can be exploited for performance analysis of distributed e-business systems. We study a real-world application, and demonstrate the benefits, in terms of modelling power and expressiveness, that QPN models provide over conventional modelling paradigms such as Queuing Networks and Petri Nets. As shown, QPNs facilitate the integration of both hardware and software aspects of system behavior in the same model. In addition to hardware contention and scheduling strategies, using QPNs one can easily model simultaneous resource possession, synchronization, blocking and contention for software resources. By validating the models presented through measurements, we show that they are not just powerful as a specification mechanism, but are also very powerful as a performance analysis and prediction tool. However, currently available tools and techniques for QPN analysis are limited. Improved solution methods, which enable larger models to be analyzed, need to be developed. By demonstrating the power of QPNs as a modelling paradigm in realistic scenarios, we hope to motivate further research in this area.},
