Jonathan Allen (InfoQ) writing on tiered compilation in .NET 3.0:
Quote:
the runtime initially produces quick to compile but non optimal JIT code as needed and then executes it. Then in the background the runtime analyzes the context and IL code to determine if a more optimal JIT solution can be achieved. If so, it recompiles the IL code and swaps out the slow JIT path with the optimal JIT path. I'm sure there's some additional complexity in how that's achieved, but that's the basic idea. For static class initializers and static readonly field initializers, the runtime will produce first pass code that takes the init lock. That protects against the initializers ever running twice. That locking also has a runtime performance penalty. So, once the initializer runs once, the optimizer will simply produce new optimized accessor code paths that don't do any locking anymore!
[^].

I find Allen's in-depth coverage of C# and .NET developments, future features, etc., the most useful of any current source ... okay, okay ... Kent Sharkey, Scott Hanselman, Mads Torgensen, and the Nabobs and Hierophants of CodeProject are equally stellar phenomena Smile | :)
