Technology startup Javosize, which claims to consist of “frustrated Java developers”, is offering devs free access to its Application Performance Management (APM) platform for 90 days.
The platform, slated for launch in October 2015, will cost $9.99 per month after the trial period as the company is looking to offer a low-cost product. Each beta tester will also be able to utilize three application servers at no cost.
Javosize chief magical officer Michael Carducci – and no, that isn’t a typo, Carducci combines coding with performing as a magician – said the platform is the first of its kind to examine code without instrumentation or profiling API, shunning the use of restarting when modifying and patching Java classes and ensuring real time utilisation. The platform boasts a user-friendly interface and automatic platform updates among others.
According to report, almost 64% of the health insurance marketplace on Healthcare.gov has been coded in Java, with the US government spending around $2.1 billion over a couple of years to build and repair the website. Carducci claims that Javosize could bring down costs at the website, adding that beta testers were benefiting from an up to 90% decline in troubleshooting and quality assurance cycles time, boosting profitability.
Carducci said: “Fast, automated troubleshooting and on-the-fly repair is the Holy Grail of Java development. Even if the Java-related costs of the Java programming and troubleshooting were only a billion dollars and Javosize reduced the cost by 10%, that’s still a $100 million saving.”
The developers at Javosize do not appear to be the only ones frustrated. As reported in various outlets, Oracle has recently made all its Java evangelists redundant. Although the software giant has not confirmed the news, Java consultant Kirk Pepperdine took to Twitter to describe the “unsettling event.”
