Subject [Harmony Wiki] Update of "Jitrino OPT/translator" by George Timoshenko
Date Tue, 06 May 2008 09:23:01 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Harmony Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by George Timoshenko:
http://wiki.apache.org/harmony/Jitrino_OPT/translator

New page:
The bytecode translator is responsible for converting incoming bytecode instructions into
a high-level intermediate representation. This IR is of a lower level than the bytecode and
breaks complex bytecode operations into several simple instructions to expose more opportunities
to later high-level optimization phases. For example, loading an object field is broken up
into operations that perform a null check of the object reference, load the base address of
the object, compute the address of the field, and load the value at that computed address.
