Subject [jira] Updated: (HARMONY-6039) Implement on-demand class library parsing to avoid unnecessary jar/zip parsing during startup
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2008 04:04:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6039?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Wenlong Li updated HARMONY-6039:
--------------------------------

    Description: 
During VM creation, Harmony will parse all class libraried defined in bootclasspath.properties
under jre/lib/boot directory. However, not all class libraries are accessed during startup.
That means, it is not necessary to open and resolve all these class libraries.

In this patch, I implement the on-demand jar parsing. I leverage the class library info defined
in the manifest file of each module. For a request class, if it is not available in existing
class table, I then parse its class library info, and check which module contains this requested
class. That is, I parse the class library on demand.

Using on-demand class library parsing, I can reduce the VM creation time from 20+ seconds
to 3 seconds.

I enable this feature into reading boot class path option, and it can be disabled by using
-Xbootclasspath option.
