DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.


It feels great to get some progress done, avoiding walls is nice.


Had this idea for the native compiler optimization, optimize out certain aspects of the library. Say if checkedList in Collections is used and the compiler determines that the specific argument is never violated and it is known to be impossible to violate, then it could optimize out the static method call and make it a plain list. However it can only be safely done if the list is local and always remains local (never becomes visible to the outside).
