Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENJPA-2068) Improve performance of java.util.Calendar fields
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2011 16:43:39 GMT


Rick Curtis commented on OPENJPA-2068:

The code I committed doesn't have the quirk where you'll get a proxied instance when you issue
a query where you only are selecting a Calendar field. Also, this behavior isn't configurable
as it is transparent.

> While doing some performance testing, I've found that we could improve the performance
of loading Entities that have java.util.Calendar fields. When loading the data into a Calendar
field, we actually create two Calendar instances per field. Normally creating an extra instance
wouldn't be that big of a deal, but since creating a Calendar is very expensive I would like
to remove creation of the extra instance.
> The call flow is something like this:
> - em.find(...) // find an Entity which has a calendar field
> ... execute query, processing result set...
> - DBDictionary.getCalendar(ResultSet,...) // Here we pull a Timestamp out of the result
set, and create an unproxied Calendar instance.
> ...
> // now while trying to store the Calendar into the Entity instance, we find that this
type needs to be proxied. 
> SingleFieldManager.proxy(...) // Here we create the second Calendar instance, which is
a proxied calendar
> I'd like to add a configuration property to DBDictionary that tells the runtime to always
create proxied calendar instances. This would remove the creation of the initial un-proxied
instance. For a large majority of application which use Calendars this would help. 
> As always, there is a catch to this approach. If you were to execute a query such as
: em.createQuery("SELECT c.myCal FROM CalendarEntity c where", MyCalendar.class),
you would get back a proxied instance. This shouldn't be that big of a deal... but still a
bit of a quirk.
