Description Robin Green 2005-04-14 00:54:58 UTC
(This is superficially similar to bug 16439, in that it involves "synthetic
code" being tagged with insufficiently precise line numbers.)

Compiling the attached .class file with

gcj -findirect-dispatch -shared -S -O0 -g WebappClassLoader.class

results in the following (i386) assembly code for line 1578:

        .loc 1 1578 0
        movl    _CD_org_apache_catalina_loader_WebappClassLoader+200, %eax
        subl    $12, %esp
        pushl   %eax
        call    _Jv_AllocObjectNoFinalizer
        addl    $16, %esp
        movl    %eax, -368(%ebp)
        movl    -368(%ebp), %eax
        movl    %eax, -364(%ebp)
        movl    -364(%ebp), %eax
        movl    %eax, -368(%ebp)
        movl    12(%ebp), %eax
        movl    %eax, -272(%ebp)
        .loc 1 1651 0
        movl    -364(%ebp), %ecx
        movl    _atable_org_apache_catalina_loader_WebappClassLoader+92, %eax
        movl    %eax, %edx
        movl    -272(%ebp), %eax
        subl    $8, %esp
        pushl   %eax
        pushl   %ecx
        call    *%edx
        addl    $16, %esp
        .loc 1 1578 0
        movl    -368(%ebp), %eax
        subl    $12, %esp
        pushl   %eax
        call    _Jv_Throw

Note that while the start and end of this code block is correctly marked as
being from line 1578, the middle (the indirect dispatch) is incorrectly marked
as being from line 1651 (which happens to be the line number of the last
statement in the method.) This causes line numbers in some stack traces to be

Is this still an issue?
Comment 4 Andrew Pinski 2016-09-30 22:50:39 UTC
Closing as won't fix as the Java front-end has been removed from the trunk.
