Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6075) Use modern collections in impl/sql/compile
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2013 01:47:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6075?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13613392#comment-13613392

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-6075:
----------------------------------------

Thanks for the follow-up and the nice breakdown, Knut Anders.

This information is very valuable; it would be neat if we could figure out some
way to incorporate it into, say, our release notes, since as you say this is
good news and backed up by solid evidence.

It's great to see that all the hard work that you and others on the team have
been putting into performance is paying off. I'm looking forward to using the
new release even more now!

> The code in the org.apache.derby.impl.sql.compile package predates the Java Collections
Framework and uses old-style collections like java.util.Vector and java.util.Hashtable. Since
the old-style collection classes are used in many method signatures, it's difficult to use
modern collection classes when adding new code.
> I suggest we switch to using interfaces (like java.util.List and java.util.Map) instead
of specific classes in the signatures, so that we have more flexibility in choosing the right
collection class for the job.
> Only changing the signatures would allow us to continue using Vector and Hashtable, since
they implement the interfaces. However, I think it would be good to switch to ArrayList and
HashMap in a second step. The instances in impl/sql/compile are not shared between threads,
so we don't need the synchronization provided by the old-style classes. Switching to unsynchronized
classes may make compilation slightly faster.
