Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-935) Possible performance improvement on string escape functions
Date Sat, 14 Mar 2015 12:49:38 GMT


Thomas Neidhart commented on LANG-935:

thats not the edge case I was talking about.
The problem is not with the way the LookupTranslator is used for the escapeXXX methods, but
that the LookupTranslator could be used in different scenarios as it is a public class.

I am a bit busy right now, but will come up with a testcase to illustrate the problem if you
still do not see it.

Imho, it would be better to use the approach from the original proposal to improve the escapeXXX
methods, but leave the LookupTranslator untouched for now.

> The escape functions for HTML etc. use the same code and the same initialisation tables
for the escape and unescape functions, and while this is an elegant approach it leads to a
number of deficiencies:
> 1. The code is very much less efficient than it could be
> 2. A new output string is created even when no conversion is required
> 3. No mapping is provided for characters that do not have a specific representation (for
example HTML 0x101 should become &amp;#257; )
> The proposal is to use a new mapping technique to address these issues
