Where's the Kaboom?

Just reading some stuff over at TopCoder..
http://www.topcoder.com/rtables/viewThread.jsp?forum=64101&thread=232826&mc=27

and came across this statement:

Quote
From the conversations I've read on -Xcomp - it's pretty much like running a C++ program - you have a static compile up front and run the resulting code (it will NOT attempt any further enhancements nor back-out of bad guesses).


Which led me to ponder...  Does -Xcomp inline anything?  Can methods be inlined later during the run if you use -Xcomp.  

Which comes down to: Is -Xcomp a valid way to benchmark or is it going to give you something too different from what you would get with a 'warmed up' mixed mode run?

He's completely wrong.

All -Xcomp does is reduce the Hotspot threshold for compilation to 0 (compile each method immediately.)

Otherwise ist just like any other compilation Hotspot does.

I did doubt the accuracy of that info, which is why I brought it up here... we all know that this side of the web is 100% accurate  Wink

Well 98.6% accurate...

I'm wrong every so often.  And I like to think that, once its proven, I'm man enough to accept it Smiley

But here I'm very very sure he's wrong. Smiley
