Small, responsive and dedicated performance teams tend to be the ones that produce the highest-performing Java code, according to a study released today by RebelLabs.
The study, which polled more than 1,500 Java developers around the world, revealed a number of trends around development and performance — including the fact that proactive testing and small team sizes tend to correlate with reports of happier end users.
According to the survey, teams that have happy users are more than 40 percent more likely than others to profile their code on a daily or weekly basis. By contrast, many developers typically dont take a deeper look into their code unless theres something wrong, the study found more than 42 percent of respondents said they only performed profiling when there were issues already apparent, and almost 10 percent said they never profiled at all.
