In the past there have been some very interesting publications about hotspot (however since 2000 its unfourtunatly totally quiet :( ) and I found some papers which talk about the inlineing capabilities of hotspot.
It mentions that most methods can be inlined thanks to CHA. But whats that? I guess its CH-Analysis but whats CH ;)
Another interesting question for me is wether hotspot also inlines static methods, since all benchmark show that static method invocation is slower than a "normal" one.
Thank you in advance, lg Clemens
