Subject [jira] Created: (HARMONY-1558) Cleaning insides of Class.h header
Date Sat, 23 Sep 2006 14:13:22 GMT
Cleaning insides of Class.h header

                 Key: HARMONY-1558
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-1558
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: DRLVM
            Reporter: Pavel Pervov

"I would like to work on cleaning the insides of Class.h header file.
This header is related to internal representation of java class inside the VM. Currently it
contains all entities for internal class representation: class itself, constant pool, members
(field, method), exceptions handler, vtable and so forth. 
First thing I would like to do is to split the file into a group of files, each of which would
contain only one entity (and some closely related entities, if any). This would produce the
following headers: 
1)       Class.h - constant pool and class
2)       vtable.h - vtable
3)       class_member.h - field and method entities descriptors, exception handler descriptor
4)       cci.h - code chunk entity (part of compiled method code)
Second thing to do is to throw away members (and other stuff), which are not used anymore
and the only reason they are still there is history or they do not belong to these files.
Third thing to do is to make all these entities C++ objects. Currently, member variables of
all listed entities are used arbitrarily throughout DRLVM code. I would like to regularize
usage and, also, document internals of these entities."
