Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Performance Zone (Apr. 18 to Apr. 24). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Why Dart Comes with a Virtual Machine

Dart comes with a high-performance virtual machine. This controversial decision led to questions if it is going to break the Web. In this article I want to look at why we need this virtual machine, and how it can be added to Chrome without breaking the Web.

2. Java 7 vs. Java 8: Performance Benchmarking of Fork/Join

With the recent release of Java 8, developers are just beginning to asses the strengths and weaknesses of the new platform. The most pressing question is: Does Java 8 have the fastest JVM so far? A good way to asses the progress of Java 8 is to test its ability to work with something that was new to Java 7, Fork/Join.

3. Java String length confusion

You always know what you get if you call String.lenght(). It's easy, or not?

4. HashMap Performance Improvements in Java 8

HashMap is fast, versatile and ubiquitous data structure in every Java program. First some basics.

5. Higher Availability, Increased Scale and Enhanced Security on Apache HBase

Episode #21 of the Podcast was a talk with Michael Stack, Lars Hofhansl and Andrew Purtell. Having these guests from the Apache HBase PMC allowed us to talk about HBase 0.96, 0.98, some use cases, HBaseCon and 1.0.
