Method Detail


public static void analyze(CompleteUnitGraph graph,
                           int maxAlloc)
Find allocations of non-escaping objects. Our requirements:
  1. Object must not be thrown, returned, assigned to any field, assigned to any array element, or passed to any method. MONITORENTER is allowed, hence these must be balanced.
  2. Allocation size must be known a priori.
  3. Object must not override finalize().
  4. Object must not subclass java.lang.ref.Reference.
  5. The allocation must not be within a loop

We impose a maximum total size for all stack allocations in the method. We prioritize allocations by size (smallest first).

All allocations that may be stack allocated are tagged with a StackAllocTag.

graph - graph computed from method
maxAlloc - max number of bytes of stack allocated objects
