Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-939) Java: optimize BinaryData#compareBytes() to use sun.misc.Unsafe when available
Date Thu, 19 Jul 2012 02:06:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-939?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13417986#comment-13417986

Scott Carey commented on AVRO-939:

I see, it is using a few utility methods from Guava.  Most of these look easily replaceable
with small private methods.  I think we'll want a bigger reason to pull in guava, Avro already
runs into enough downstream dependency conflicts with other libraries.

based on sun.misc.Unsafe that's ~4x faster than the normal Java implementation.
