           Summary: [PATCH] Fop Performance degradation after upgrading
                    from jdk 6 u18 to u19
           Product: Fop
           Version: all
          Platform: PC
            Status: NEW

patch Patch for class o.a.f.fonts.type1.AFMParser that improves performance &
java source files that points the issue.

Using Apache FOP 1.0 to create Postscript documents from xml files after
upgrading the Java Virtual Machine from 1.6 update 18 to 1.6 update 19,
important performance degradation was observed. The FOP execution time was
increased about 25% - 35%. After investigating this, we concluded that the code
that was responsible for this delay was in the method setValue of inner class
BeanSetter of class o.a.f.fonts.type1.AFMParser. This method uses reflection to
set the value of a bean and our tests showed that the time to execute a
reflection call like this was increased in jdk6 u19. 
In the attached files may be found a patch for class
o.a.f.fonts.type1.AFMParser that improves performance. Also the attachment
contains a Java file with a minimal fo and configuration that shows the issue.
It contains a main class where fop converts the fo file to postscript 500

Below may  be found the execution times for the provided test using the
mentioned versions of Java (Windows 7 x64).

Java 6 update 18 it takes 30754 msec.
Java 6 update 19 it takes 54263 msec.

After applying the patch: 

Java 6 update 18 it takes 34240 msec.
Java 6 update 19 it takes 32501 msec.

The svn revision from which the patch was created is revision #1330050 from
