Subject Re: [general][jitrino] How does JIT deal with CALL inst when generating native code?
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 06:29:06 GMT
Simon,

Each time JIT plans to call a method, it does the following:
1) if method is not resolved, JIT inserts a call to resolution stub;
2) if method is available, JIT asks for
MethodDesc::getCodeBlockAddress(0) on this method. If method is not
compiled yet, VM has generated special "compile_me" for this method on
class preparation, and its address will be returned in a call to
getCodeBlockAddress.

WBR,
    Pavel.
