Subject [jira] [Commented] (OGNL-20) Performance - Replace synchronized blocks with ReentrantReadWriteLock

Julien Aymé commented on OGNL-20:
---------------------------------

Hi all,

I will provide both a small benchmark test and a patch using ConcurrentHashMap and Generics,
starting from the existing code.
The patch will be ready in 4 hours or so (depending on the free time I can get at lunch :-)
)

> I've noticed a lot of synchronized blocks of code in OGNL. For the most part, these synchronized
blocks are controlling access to HashMaps, etc. I believe this could be done far better using
ReentrantReadWriteLocks. ReentrantReadWriteLock allows unlimited concurrent access, and single
threads only for writes. Perfect in an environment where the ratio of reads  is far higher
than writes; which is typically the scenario for caching. Plus the access control can be tuned
for reads and writes; not just a big synchronized{} wrapping a bunch of code.
