Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-636) performance enhancement for Arrays.sort(Object[]...)
Date Thu, 22 Jun 2006 07:42:31 GMT

Rustem Rafikov commented on HARMONY-636:
----------------------------------------

Hi Tim, 

Unfortunately,  the test is not perfect :). It requires that words list must be in aspell
format (i.e. strings should be delimited with 0x00). 
Such stack trace may be if you use hand-written words file with strings delimited by 'new
line'. 
Is it such case? 

Should I attach my words.txt to run the test?

> Dear All,
> I would like to suggest a patch improving performance of object's sorting algorithms.
> Actually the algorithm suggested uses different methods for sorting objects and strings:
> 1.	Object's sorting uses adaptive merge-sort. It works much faster for nearly sorted
arrays.
> 2.	String's sorting algorithms are specially tuned for strings.
> Attached zip contains the patch itself and a micro benchmark.
> The micro-bench loads 100000 strings from aspell dictionary (you can find it in /usr/lib/aspell,
for example: english-med-only), makes it sorted with different degree and then sort it. 
> Even though this patch adds a lot of code lines instead of a little piece of original
code, the test shows performance improvement as much as 45% for objects and 50% for strings.
> Thanks, 
> Rustem
