Subject RE: [rmi] package comparison
Date Fri, 05 May 2006 18:33:54 GMT
Daniel,

I was going to run your tests against our implementation, and it looks
like there's a lot of tests in the package, but I found no documentation
on how to run them. Could you please instruct me on how your test suite
works and how can I run it?

Thank you!

Vasily

Subject: [rmi] package comparison (was Re: Contribution of RMI
framework)

Vasily,
    a couple of things about package comparison:

a) java 5.0 vs 1.4.2
 Our rmi package was developed according to 5.0 rmi spec, and
it takes full advantage of 5.0 new features (like java.util.concurrent)
 Since Harmony classlib and VMs are still in 1.4.2 we deployed
a 1.4.2 version of our package in which we removed the 5.0
dependencies.    There is obviously a performance penalty
paid by the 1.4.2 release of the package.
You can find both versions of the packages at 
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-211

b) compatibility with reference implementation
   within our contribution you will find a complete set of test cases
(source code and documentation for each).   We run these test cases
against our package before contributing it, so I guess one way to
move further is to cross run test cases (you run ours and we run
yours).   What do you think?

c) performance analysis and comparison
    I believe the first step here is to get along about which is the
workload or set of applications that represent a "real" use of rmi
package.   I see a big challenge here...

I'll wait for your comments,

Daniel

Hi, Mikhail,

Regretfully, the method-to-method comparison would hardly be effective
with RMI, as it's a highly integrated component.

80% of implementation is hidden in non-public API, and some components
(e. g. RMIC) have no public API at all. So it's hard to plug just one
public method from one implementation to another without modifying
non-public code - and non-public code could have (and probably does
have) very different structure in different implementations.

What we really can do is try to run both these implementations and
compare them for conformance to the specification, compatibility with
reference implementation, maybe stability, performance, visual code
quality etc. I'm now planning to do some of these, so we'd get some
results pretty soon.

 Vasily

I think we need compare contributions method by method to assemble
the best classlib

Thanks,
