Programs work well when dealing with a considerable size of data, but their performance tend to degradate when dealing with large volumes of data. Resources are cheaper than ever, but this does not mean that we can have inefficient programs. Dealing with large amounts of data brings several challenges, even if the task is simple parsing some Java objects into JSON strings, as we will see in this article. Inefficient use of memory can make a program wasting more than 5 times the memory when compared with a more efficient one. This means that one program makes use of 1G of memory, while the inefficient one requires 5G of memory to perform the same task.
