19.5 Profilers

Many of these profilers have been reviewed in the various magazines listed previously. You can usually search the magazine web sites to identify which issue of the magazine provides a review. Often the reviews are available online. The profiler vendors should also be happy to provide pointers to reviews. The annual "best of Java" awards includes a section for profilers (see the Java Developer's Journal).
