Subject [GSoC] Project proposal: Modularize Harmony JIT by separating JET as a standalone JIT compiler
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2009 01:01:45 GMT
"So far the JIT component (called Jitrino) of Harmony has virtually
two JIT implementations: JET and OPT. Jitrino.JET is a fast but
non-optimizing JIT, and Jitrino.OPT is an optimizing JIT. The code
base of JET and OPT shares lots of code hence they are mixed in one
module. This is undesirable for situations where people need only JET,
for fast compilation, for small footprint. This project proposes to
create a standalone JET-based JIT module for Harmony. It does not
require to remove JET from Jitrino, but to create a new JIT module
with JET. This project is also a very good exercise to examine the JIT
modularity design, the interface between JIT and other components, the
interaction between multiple co-existing JIT modules."
