None of the JSR292 parts is in Groovy now, but we intend to make heavy
use of it if the JVM allows it. What we target with this is for example
that we no longer have to generate call sites at runtime. This is stress
on permgen and not every garbage collector behaves as it should in my
eyes. Another part that promises to be useful is ClassValue. We would in
fact need a InstanceValue, but it will help already avoiding some big
internal structures, that tend to cause problems. As for performance...
I think it can help here if the inlining really works. In the end it
very much depends on finding good guards here, which is part of the
process for Groovy 1.8, even though Groovy 1.8 will not yet make use of
JSR292. Since 1.8.0 will be release soon Groovy 1.9 will most probably
make use of JSR292.
