Subject A @CompileStatic for class members
Date Thu, 21 Jan 2016 15:39:47 GMT
Hi all, I'd like class field access in specific classes to be without groovy magic, so that
it is as fast as possible.  I guess this means disabling runtime metaprogramming for specific
classes (or fields).

At first, the
annotation looked like it might do the trick, as it mentions class properties being covered.
 It certainly works for class methods, but in my testing it didn't make any difference to
class members.  Setting the field "directly" (ie, via t.member below) is still an order of
magnitude slower than using its implicit setter directly (ie, t.setMember()).  Similarly for
field access vs getter.  That annotation does not seem to cover field access or assignment.

So, is there a way to make field access as quick as using the implicit getter/setter?  Thanks,

For example, on my 3+GHz Xeon with jdk1.8.0_66/groovy-all-2.4.3, the below code gives me:

t.member = val          34.577
t.setMember(val)        3.529
t.with { member = val } 127.922

package test

import groovy.transform.CompileStatic

class Test {
    String member

String val = 'test'
Test t = new Test()

for (long i = 0; i < 100 * 1000 * 1000; ++i) {

long time = 1000 * 1000 * 1000
long beg = System.currentTimeMillis()
for (long i = 0; i < time; ++i) {
    t.member = val
println('t.member = val\t\t'+(System.currentTimeMillis() - beg) / 1000.0)

beg = System.currentTimeMillis()
for (long i = 0; i < time; ++i) {
println('t.setMember(val)\t'+(System.currentTimeMillis() - beg) / 1000.0)

beg = System.currentTimeMillis()
for (long i = 0; i < time; ++i) {
    t.with { member = val }
println('t.with { member = val }\t'+(System.currentTimeMillis() - beg) / 1000.0)
