Subject [jira] Commented: (EL-5) [el] Contention on global cache / parseExpression
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2007 16:02:53 GMT

Stuart Robertson commented on EL-5:
-----------------------------------

Thanks guys.  We'll give the patch a try.  We're also looking into replacing our useage of
commons el with the builtin implementation in Websphere 6.0.  That should be a vanilla impl
of the spec from JSP 2.0, presumably actively maintained.  We're hoping that ends up being
more scalable.

Thanks again,

Stuart

> The ExpresssionEvaluatorImpl maintains a static synchronized hashmap as a global
> parser cache. In my tests, this proves to be a contention point in highly
> concurrent web access, even if the cache is already filled:
> "tcpConnection-8080-514" daemon prio=1 tid=0x08214890 nid=0x4e39 waiting for
> monitor entry [bd9ff000..bd9ff908]
>         at java.util.Collections$SynchronizedMap.get(Collections.java:1942)
>         - waiting to lock <0x45586ef0> (a java.util.Collections$SynchronizedMap)
>         at
> org.apache.commons.el.ExpressionEvaluatorImpl.parseExpressionString(ExpressionEvaluatorImpl.java:306)
> ...
> Even pre-parsing the expressions through #parseExpression doesn't help: it
> parses the expression for syntactic correctness and returns an instance of
> JSTLExpression that, however, doesn't contain the parsing result. It is reparsed
> on every evaluation.
> I propose
> * evaluator instance local caches that still need synchronization, but can be
> made thread-local, page-local oder whatever by the calling application / container.
> * to actually maintain the parsing result in JstlExpression
> I would volunteer to develop the respective patches, if desired.
