Oh, there's a secret parameter for that.
Just run JBoss with "-speed=faster"
(by default, it uses "-speed=normal").
Hehe. I guess what Julien is trying to say is that tuning is really a function of what you're doing. For instance, if I embed the microkernel in my unit tests, its a far different tune then if I'm working on a insert-only app. And furthermore, what if I'm writing a "read-only" app (meaning most data is read only)? We have about a cumulative 2.5 weeks of training on this stuff and about 500 pages of docs. It depends on what you're doing. To make an odd cliche car analogy: do you need a pickup truck, a sports car, or a tractor trailor?
