Does HotSpot ever stop profiling?

Hey, thanks for your answer.
So a method is normally only once C2-compiled. How does inlining fit into
the picture? You start from the method body and inline as deeply as
I always thought a method would be compiled multiple times while improving
its inlining. But maybe that makes no sense and you can do it all in a
single compilation effort.
