Profiling duplicate strings
I have been using YourKit to do some performance tuning on a web services application. I ran an investigation that checks for duplicate strings. If I'm interpreting the results correctly, I have 11,550 instances of the string "java.util.list". Most of these trace back to the typemap in the JAXBContextImpl. I attached an image of the results. Could this string and others that are heavily duplicated be interned?
