Benchmarking: Trove Collection Performance

by Dion Almaer

I tried out Trove, an open source collection of collections :)

I wrote an article here on ONJava.Com, which showed the performance of Trove compared to java.util.* collections.

I have had various people email with their findings, when running the benchmarks in various VM's, and on different hardware. The results have been all over the map.

This shows the need to run YOUR OWN benchmarks, on your own system. As new JVM's come out, you need to check again, as 1.4 is very different to 1.3 for example.

Don't trust anything but your own numbers ;)
