Description Kentaro Hara 2012-02-22 01:23:04 PST
I am planning to add performance tests for DOM attribute getters and setters in order to catch a performance regression in JavaScriptCore/V8 bindings, like bug 76492.

I would like to add the following two tests for each DOM attribute in HTMLElement.idl, Element.idl and Node.idl, which will most impact on the DOM performance in the real Web:

PerfTestRunner.run(function() {
    var div = document.createElement("div");
    for (i = 0; i < repeatTimesOfGetter; i++)

PerfTestRunner.run(function() {
    var div = document.createElement("div");
    for (i = 0; i < repeatTimesOfSetter; i++)
        div.id = "foo";

Actually, a setter traces a different call path depending on whether the assigned string is an empty, one character, or more than one characters. However, I guess that the test case worth adding would be just a string composed of more than one characters (e.g. "foo").

Ugh... this one too :( dom_attributes should be dom-attribute. I'm renaming that now.
