From the good folks who brought you the excellent Architecture of Open Source Applications (AOSA), available for free online, as a PDF, for e-book readers or as a good old-fashioned dead tree, we’re now treated to a new tome - the Performance of Open Source Applications (POSA).
POSA follows the same concept as AOSA - a different authoritative figure in the open source community is responsible for each chapter, providing you with excellent insight on how some of the most popular open source applications have been designed and built. POSA focuses specifically on performance rather than general software architecture, and I’ve contributed a chapter on the performance related work conducted for Infinispan (see Chapter 7).
Have a read, I’d love to know what you think.

For the past few months, I have been working with prominent technology blogger and author Francesco Marchioni on my first book ever. Unsurprisingly, this is a book on Infinispan, written for Packt Publishing.
This is an entry-level book, covering high level concepts of distributed caching and data grids, before diving into practical, hands-on details of setting up, configuring and using Infinispan. Monitoring a running grid via JMX and RHQ are also covered, as is a chapter on using Infinispan from CDI, the increasingly popular programming model for enterprise Java.
Grab the book - in print or electronic format - from Packt’s website.
