Subject Axis web service performance
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 11:05:42 GMT

I'm facing a performance problem.
First of all let me tell you that I'm quite a biginner with axis and web 
I've written a web service on axis 1.4 and Apache Tomcat 6.0.20 mounted 
on a Windows 2003 Server machine 64 bit.
With one request the web service takes something like 15 seconds to 
I'm now trying to understand how this web service behaves under a 
reasonable work load.
I'm using jmeter (a load testing tool with SOAP functionalities) to send 
100 simultaneous requests to my web service.
What I see is that the request are queued up and they get served one by 
one, so the first one takes 15 seconds while the last one takes 
something like 3 minutes!
Is there a way to speed up thing? Is there a way to obtain a certain 
level of parallelism in request processing?? If so which architecural 
(in terms of both hardware or software) modifications could improve the 
performance of this web service?? Any hints or pointers will be more 
than appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
