Subject [jira] [Created] (LANG-1229) Performance regression due to cyclic hashCode guard
Date Sun, 15 May 2016 14:28:12 GMT
Philippe Marschall created LANG-1229:

             Summary: Performance regression due to cyclic hashCode guard
                 Key: LANG-1229
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: lang.builder.*
    Affects Versions: 3.5
            Reporter: Philippe Marschall

We observed a severe performance regression in HashCodeBuilder in 3.5 trunk compared to 3.4
release. We get about 20% of the throughput in 3.5 trunk for common cases compared to 3.4
release. Previously there was no noticeable overhead of using HashCodeBuilder. Investigating
we found the performance degradation was caused by the fix for LANG-456. It causes the method
to be too large to be inlined and escape analysis to fail (see LANG-1218 for a related discussion).

We currently do not see a way to keep the 3.4 performance and support cyclic graphs. The append
methods have not supported cycles for so long we feel it's de facto part of the contract by
now. Since neither the JDK nor the Guava hashCode helper methods support cyclic graphs we
don't believe this is an unreasonable assumption. In addition EqualsBuilder#append(Object,Object)
doesn't support cycles.

If supporting cycles is a requirement we propose the introduction of new #appendRecursive
(or named differently) methods to both HashCodeBuilder and EqualsBuilder that add cycle guards.
If that is an acceptable compromise we would be willing to provide patches.
