Subject java.lang.ref.ReferenceQueue.enqueue allocates array during GC
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2008 12:48:21 GMT
Hi,

I'm having a problem with java.lang.ref.ReferenceQueue.enqueue in that 
it queues references onto an array during GC, and that this array may 
need to be grown during the GC. Generating new objects during GC is 
something of a gray area, in the VM I'm working with it is not allowed. 
An alternative is to have a field in Reference that allows references to 
be linked together. Should this approach be adopted for all of Harmony 
or just within our VM?

Thanks,
Ian Rogers
