Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-6211) Type.isPrimitive() seems really slow
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2020 10:23:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-6211?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=17074458#comment-17074458

Richard Eckart de Castilho commented on UIMA-6211:

The timings obtained above were take in the "Sampler" mode of VisualVM. I checked this again,
this time with the "Profiler" mode. With the profiler mode, I can see that there are way more
invocations in my particular context.

So this is basically down to a non-issue.

But while we are at it... there may still be room for small improvements here.

The org.apache.uima.cas.impl.TypeSystemImpl.ll_getTypeClass(int) internally uses an if-return-cascade
with primitive types being checked first, then the string type, then arrays and finally falling
back to FS. The if clause for the string type includes a call to {{ll_subsumes}}:

Since the subsumes call is slower than the other checks, it might be possible to defer it
until after the array types have been checked?

Maybe using a switch-case statement with a fall-through to cover the string-with-subtypes
case could also help a little.

of hits and the time taken in the attached screenshot.
