JSON Benchmarks in jRuby

Monday, October 25th, 2010

I am in the process of switching a major application from MRI Ruby (specifically 1.8.7-p302) using many C extensions to jRuby (currently trying 1.5.3-master). In my application, performance is extremely important. It is so important in fact, that I will be writing about some of my experiences in troubleshooting the speed and getting those important milliseconds back. When I am trying to keep an entire transaction from start to finish under 40ms and just the decoding of a JSON object into a Ruby object in jRuby takes roughly 30ms using json_pure, we may have to explore other avenues.
