J Optimizer equips Java
developers with a comprehensive toolkit for optimizing application
performance and quality. Stand-alone J Optimizer provides full
without requiring integration into an IDE or a larger development
environment. You can use J Optimizer to profile memory and CPU usage,
real-time threading information, and determine which parts of your code
are actually being executed. You can also track performance bottlenecks
at the JDBC, JMS, JNDI, JSP, EJB, CCI, and Web Services levels, and
locate the exact line of source code for root-cause analysis. You can
also run source code Audits and Metrics in J Optimizer.

In Windows XP, you can automatically do this using the msconfig.exe
tool to restart your system in a diagnostic mode that prevents
third-party services from starting up. To do this:
After successfully installing J Optimizer 2009, repeat these steps,
changing Diagnostic Startup to your usual Startup mode.
