Yes that’s what I want.

Yesterday I was using gdb to step into the interpreter generation code to see what’s generated for a particular routine for MethodHandles. The debug build contains a LOT of runtime verification code in the generated code and I couldn’t figure out what’s happening. The product build just generates 10 instructions.
So you want to have a way to force -O0 for all compiled files? Something like "bash configure --with-debug-level=release --with-optimization=none", or possibly "make OPTIMIZATION=NONE"?

Hi Magnus,

I like the --with-optimization=none flag. This doesn't seem to exist yet. Any plans to add it?

Yes, it does not exist yet. :) I'm trying out various scenarios here to understand what you need and how we can fix it.

I have opened https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8201485, however to be frank, it is of quite low priority (infrequence and odd use case, workaround exists) so I assume it will take a while before I or anyone else comes around to it.


The way I would use it is:

    bash configure --with-debug-level=product --with-optimization=none

Or are you happy with the optimization level of a slowdebug build, and only want to adjust the value of PRODUCT and ASSERT for hotspot to match what's done for a release build? Something like "bash configure --enable-hotspot-product-build"?

If I understand Ioi correctly, he wants a build with PRODUCT and !ASSERT but with debug symbols and no optimizations? So, no assertions and all switches with product defaults?

I can see that this could make sense in certain scenarios.

        Sometimes I want to debug the product build (I can't bother
        with turning off all the trueInDebug options in the hotspot

            configure --with-native-debug-symbols=internal
            mv spec.gmk spec.gmk.old
            cat spec.gmk | sed -e 's/[-]O[0-9s]/-O0/g' > spec.gmk

        Is there (or should there be) a more elegant way to do it,
        like "configure --with-debug-level=slowproduct" :-)

    I'm not entirely sure of what you want to achieve.

    As I interepret your snippet above, you want no optimization
    and internal debug symbols..? How is that debugging a "product"
