comment How to monitor memory after major garbage collection via JMX or code
Thank you, but I'm talking about normal use in production, where money is an issue. (I updated the question to reflect that better). Using dynatrace is probably not a sensible option for that, and it would be much easier to write some code that parses the garbage collection logfile. :-)

comment How to monitor Java memory usage?
Running System.gc often, just to get sensible statistics of memory usage, will hurt performance. So it's not a "just do it". System.gc() is sensible in cases like "OK, now a big work that needed big memory is done, and I have nothing much to do right now, so I collect garbage to improve performance of minor garbage collections later."

comment Logfile viewer that is able to consecutively remove uninteresting loglines
@Izzy If there are solutions that run only on some platforms, I could adapt. So I'd rather make it general.

comment How to make a large codebase easier to understand for new programmers
DRY as a guideline for the documentation is a very good point! That automatically sets the focus right and forbids the famously obnoxious "// increment x by 1" comments.

comment How to have hibernate use String.intern on attributes
I had some trouble when trying this, but don't have time to investigate. So I'm not quite sure whether this will work.
