    Preparing HotSpot JVM for Production


      I was wondering what the recommended method for start up on large scale applications is in relation to the HotSpot JVM. That is, since the compiling happens based on common paths and such would it be reasonable for start up procedure to include running test data through an application to "prime" the Hot Spots and get the JVM to compile them before actual production data.

      I know I read about systems that save profiling data to be inserted on start up but I read that such an optimization is rarely required. Is it normal to run test data through a system to prepare it for production or is there a standard way to transfer profiling data to a standard Sun JVM?

      Thanks for any help.
