Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-2744) Avoid element arrays in PathImpl
Date Mon, 13 Sep 2010 13:45:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2744?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12908783#action_12908783

Michael Dürig commented on JCR-2744:

This looks very good to me. Do you have some performance figures already?

However I think that RelativePath#getElements() need to improve. The current implementations
recursively calls getElements() on the parent and adds its own element to the returned array.
To do so the returned array needs to be copied. Copying the array once for each recursive
invocation effectively results in O(n^2) run time characteristics. I suggest to change the
recursive implementation into an iterative one which collects the name elements of all ancestors
of the current path into a pre allocated array.

>            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
> The path handling code in spi-commons shows quite often in thread dumps and profiling
results, as the current implementation does quite a bit of repetitive allocating and copying
of path element arrays. We should be able to streamline and simplify the path handling code
by only tracking the latest path element and a reference to the parent path. To do this efficiently
we may need to adjust some of the Path and PathFactory method declarations (that currently
assume element array -based paths) also in the SPI.
