Subject RE: Integer primitive division
Date Fri, 23 Oct 2015 21:24:42 GMT
I can do that, but it does int x = Integer.valueOf(12).intdiv(Integer.valueOf(2)).intValue().
So there is still the overhead of boxing and unboxing, which doesn’t exist for other primitive
operations, and intdiv itself performs some reflection magic as well. What I’m wondering
is if Java is strictly required if performance is a concern with division.

I think you can just do


it will return a java.lang.Number so you will have to cast it to an java.lang.Integer

Then it coverts 12 and 2 to Integer objects, calls a method that performs BigDecimal division,
then calls “as int” (not just intValue) on the result, which itself does instanceof checks.

I tried intdiv, and it is more efficient, but it still converts to and from Integer objects
so that it can do A.intValue() / B.intValue(), and storing that result in an Integer itself.

I see if I just do 12 + 2, it does a true primitive operation in the bytecode. Is there any
way to perform primitive division in Groovy the same way it is done in Java?
