Contemporary enterprise web applications provide complex user interface functionality to attract users with desktop-like features. Naturally, such increasing UI complexity and user expectation results in greater application resource demands, which may degrade performance. System performance is measured by application responsiveness for end users in service delivery. Web application performance optimization occurs at all levels of the application, from server hardware, to database, etc. In this paper, the authors focus on the network delivery of application assets, identify bottlenecks in the service delivery, and provide suggestions for optimization.
