SPECjAppServer2001 (Java Application Server) is a client/server benchmark for measuring the performance of Java Enterprise Application Servers using a subset of J2EE API's in a complete end-to-end web application. Joining the client-side SPECjvm98 and the server side SPECjbb2000, SPECjAppServer2001 continues the SPEC tradition of giving Java users the most objective and representative benchmark for measuring a system's ability to run Java applications.
SPEC has designed the SPECjAppServer2001 benchmark to exercise the Java Enterprise Application Server, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), as well as the server Systems Under Test (SUT). As a true J2EE application the benchmark will require a functional RDBMS (for JDBC) and a Web Server, but the benchmark has been designed so that the SUT can be a single system.
Please note that while the SPECjAppServer2001 suite is still available for purchase, the suite has been retired, no further results are being accepted for publication, and support is no longer provided.
