My understanding is that JavaC does that for you to the extent that it can safely determine (compact booleans in to a single integer, etc). But I don't know for certain, it would be a worth experiment to just try it out.

I would recommend trying to use jmh ( to write a few micro benchmarks just to see what the differences are.
