        Description

        Currently HeapShared::archive_module_graph_objects requires the creation of a new C++ class in javaClasses.hpp for each Java class where we want to archive a static field. See:

        http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk/file/910f7b56592f/src/hotspot/share/memory/heapShared.cpp#l505
        http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk/file/910f7b56592f/src/hotspot/share/classfile/javaClasses.hpp#l1488

        This is hard to maintain and error prone. We should try to refactor the code it so the set of archivable static fields can be specified by a simple table.
