        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        This has been a production critical problem since October 2007.

        It is still a problem in:

        java version "1.7.0"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b147)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        2.6.38-gentoo-r5 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed May 11 20:18:51 UTC 2011 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 820 @ 1.73GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        The Proxy class has poor performance under multi-threaded environments

        http://sesat.no/projects/sesat-commons/commons-reflect/
         has a ConcurrentProxy implementation that is basically a copy of Proxy but
        changes the caching mechanism from using a HashMap surrounded with hard synchronization to a ConcurrentMap.

        This has been used intensely, and was a necessity, in production at
        http://sesam.no
        http://sesam.se
        http://finn.no

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Use Proxy.getProxyClass(..) under very high concurrency.

        (It's rather obvious that any HashMap+synchronised-block will lock up under high concurrency).

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        Decent performance under high concurrency.
        ACTUAL -
        Poor performance, or complete lock up of the jvm.

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        Replace all occurrences of Proxy with ConcurrentProxy from the project "commons-reflection" hosted at https://github.com/finn-no/commons-reflection

        Correction: It's a HashMap with synchronized statements that are being replaced
        with a ConcurrentMap.

        I would suggest bringing this up on ###@###.### for
