I am trying to do some modifications in the allocation process of 'external'
objects i.e. objects allocated using 'new' by any java program.
As written in the whitepaper, JVM employs the fast allocation or 'Bump a
pointer' technique for allocating external objects.
I am not able to find the entry point of the 'new' keyword i.e. what functions
are called when it sees the new keyword in a java program.
My initial suspect was JRT_ENTRY(...) macro in the runtime.cpp file, where they
have matched 'new_instance_java' with 'new_instance_C'.
I tried to follow the functions called by this macro i.e.
Although it did take me to some object allocation but I am not sure if this is
the process used to allocate java objects.
It seems this process is used by the JVM to allocate it's internal runtime
objects to build the environment.
I don't know a whole lot about jvm, this is just what I could make out by
looking at the code.
Please help me find the definition new.
