Description Stephan Bergmann 2009-04-30 14:59:10 UTC
The fix for issue 93939 (integrated into OOO310m8 and DEV300m46) apparently introduced a mistake that causes javaldx to search for an appropriate Java installation on *every* soffice startup. This affects Linux and Solaris (i.e., the platforms that run javaldx from the soffice wrapper script). On one specific Linux machine, this caused cold start numbers for soffice -writer to increase from 8 sec (DEV300m45 unxlngi6.pro OOo) to 13 sec (DEV300m46 unxlngi6.pro OOo). tbo volunteered to check whether start up performance similarly degraded for OOO310m8 (which might have an impact on the appropriate target for this issue). See the attached DEV300m46-jvmfwk.patch for an apparent fix.

Well, that's embarrassing.
Comment 3 b.osi.ooo 2009-04-30 16:33:35 UTC
ok here are the results from the OOO310 jury with some compareable times from DEV300: OOO310m11: 4770 ms +/- 40 ms DEV300m46: 4968 ms +/- 49 ms DEV300m43: 2124 ms +/- 15 ms OOO310m5 ist currently measuring, but is also in the range of: 2130 ms so performance regression of startuptime for OOO310 also;
Comment 4 joachim.lingner 2009-05-13 11:32:18 UTC
@of: Please verify: 1. Ony during the first start (Unix) a Java is searched for. If one is found then at the following start ups no Java is searched. To see what Java was selected you can look into ~/.openoffice/3/user/config/javasettins_....xml 2.Select a particular java. Then when restarting OOo no Java is being searched for. Close OOo and rename the folder of the Java which you selected before. The next time you start OOo a Java will be searched again.

This issue prevents an Office start with Java debugging enabled - javaldx fails when debugging parameter are given to the JVM. This is also an issue for the NetBeans plugin on Solaris and Linux. I will verify if the fix works there.

Verified on Solaris x86, works fine.

of: verified in cws ooo31osol.

Hello sb, *, I have tested this issue with Debian SID AMD64 and OOO310m18. Here OOo starts quick as well as the search under Tools - Options - OOo - Java is really quick ... ;) Could someone else check it with an other distribution or Solaris and close this issue, if it fixed, please? TIA Thomas.

Issue fix has been confirmed by 'OOo on OSOL' users. Thanks for helping.
