> Currently DRLVM uses APR mutexes and condition variables. These require APR memory pools
to be allocated from,
> and releasing memory pools may be tricky at times. For example, the memory lifecycle
of the native monitor is associated
> with the java object lifecycle, thus requires a specific object-specific pool. While
this solution is possible, it will incur
> significant memory overhead.
> The attached patch series proposes a simplified model by using Pthreads or Win32 interfaces
directly, without layering APR.
> It allows for explicit memory allocation and deallocation, and makes fixing thread memory
model much easier.
> The patch series is incomplete, as it still uses APR thread creation APIs, and thus APR
pools are still created for every thread.
> I will work further to remove this dependency as well.
