On Tapestry’s Performance
Tapestry claims to be performant and scalable. You want a proof? Than read this great post. The author compares the¬†performance¬†of Rails, Wicket, Grails, Play, Tapestry, Lift, JSP, Context. It is not a surprise that Tapestry outperformed the most of the¬†competitors. Here are the results:
For more details on the benchmark please read the original article.
Two years ago Peter Thomas made a similar comparison and the result was not that good for Tapestry. It seems like two year ago Wicket was ahead of ¬†Tapestry and Grails. But the recent comparison shows that Wicket’s performance is the worst. What could be the reason for such different results? First of all, I believe that Peter Thomas’ comparison was not accurate. Peter is known to be a Wicket lover. When the comparison is made by an unbiased person, then the results look completely different.¬†Another possible reason could be that Tapestry improved in the last two years a lot. Removal of page pooling and other important changes might be the reason for that. However, seeing that Tapestry’s performance just rocks is a satisfaction.
