Subject [jira] Updated: (HARMONY-1952) [drlvm] do not call any java from vm_hint_finalize()
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2006 15:15:17 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-1952?page=all ]

Salikh Zakirov updated HARMONY-1952:
------------------------------------

    Attachment: no-java-in-vm-hint-finalize.diff

no-java-in-vm-hint-finalize.diff is a RFC (request for comments) on how this could be achieved.
It replaces running java method from vm_hint_finalize() by notifying on finalizer thread class.
It also changes finalizer thread to use the same object for synchronization.

The patch compiles and seems to run smoke tests on Windows/ia32 okay.

*RFC* Please review and comment. Please do not commit.

> Currently, the finalization subsystem uses notification methods vm_hint_finalize(), which
> is run by GC from arbitary allocation points. It can cause spurious ClassCircularityError.
