Richard S. Hall closed FELIX-4042.

    Resolution: Duplicate

Read the original issue for some of my thoughts on this...in short, I'm not sure how much
improvement you'll see.

>                 Key: FELIX-4042
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4042
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Framework
>    Affects Versions: framework-4.2.1
>            Reporter: Tom Mueller
> The GlassFish server has 292 bundles and this number continues to increase. When starting
the server, the entire bundle cache is read in by Felix in the Felix.init method by calling
Felix.reloadBundle in a simple for loop. Currently, in GlassFish this takes 440 ms on a MBP
which is about 10% of the entire server startup time. 
> With the availability of multi-threaded CPUs and memory-cached disk I/O, it might be
possible to improve Felix framework initialization time by making this process multi-threaded.
Unfortunately, the reloadBundle method locks the global lock for almost its entire execution,
so simply multi-threading the loop will not help.  The reloadBundle logic will need to be
refactored to make multi-threading effective in improving performance. 
> Another idea is to somehow flag certain bundles for reloading before other bundles and
then allow "lazy" loading of this cache. When GlassFish starts, there are some bundles that
are needed immediately while others are not accessed until later. 
> The goal for this improvement request is to have a constant initialization time for Felix
that is independent of the number of bundles that are in the cache.
