Version 1.2.1 of the EasySMF:JE Java API is now available.
- Add SMF Type 121 (Java Statistics) record.
This record has some interesting information, but has one major drawback. The ID running the Java job needs access to write SMF records. This is probably a security issue in many shops, because in general you don’t want to allow unauthorized users to write SMF records. It would be much nicer if this information was written by the JVM, without requiring special access for the user.
Modify samples to demonstrate use of Java 8 Streams functions. Streams are very nice for processing SMF data, and in many cases allow you to greatly simplify your code. It is unclear at the moment what the performance implications are. There are suggestions in some places that the code generated by Streams is not as well optimized as loops and iterators. That may be the case, but I don’t know yet whether the difference is detectable.
