Subject [jira] [Created] (JEXL-277) Speedup arithmetic evaluations
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2018 08:29:00 GMT
Dmitri Blinov created JEXL-277:

             Summary: Speedup arithmetic evaluations
                 Key: JEXL-277
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 3.1
         Environment: The [PR 15|] is prepared
for this ticket
            Reporter: Dmitri Blinov

As of now, Jexl inefficiently evaluates operators *+*, *-*, */*, *%*, *\** on Integer and
Long types as it casts operands to BigInteger type, applies operation and casts the result
back. This for example, creates 3 BigInteger instances for a simple operation of 1+1. All
evaluations on Integer types, and in some cases, on Long types, can be performed on corresponding
primitive *long* values, which is a magnitute of 200%-300% faster, in my measurments, and
unneeded objects are not allocated on heap. Another point is to make selfAssign operators
*overridable* in descendands of JexlArithmetic, instead of being able to be *oveloaded*, which
can save the time by avoiding reflection when using syntax like {code}x += 1{code}.
