Will bug 6566201 be fixed in the final 6uN?
As some of you might know, the current line of 1.6.0 has a long-standing issue with being extremely slow on loading large JAR files from the JAR cache, an issue which is documented in bug 6566201. This issue didn't exist in 1.5.0 and earlier JRE major versions.
We have one such application deployed, whose JAR file is very large, 35 MB to be exact - Oracle Discoverer, some of you might know it. If I study the above bug link, it claims, that the bug should fixed in the "6u10(b08)" build.
All I can say to this is, that when I test Discoverer with the latest 1.6.0_10 beta build 25, this bug does NOT seem to have been fixed. This bug is a severe showstopper for us regarding moving to 1.6.0 on our clients, because on 1.6.0, the application still runs painfully slow compared to 1.5.0.
For your reference, Oracle MetaLink Note 465234.1 verifies Oracle's own research on the Discoverer problem to be linked to this bug.
Can someone from Sun themselves elaborate a bit on this? What is the current status of this bug?
Thanks in advance,
