Vincent St-Amour and Shu-yu Guo. Optimization Coaching for JavaScript (Artifact). In Special Issue of the 29th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2015). Dagstuhl Artifacts Series (DARTS), Volume 1, Issue 1, pp. 5:1-5:2, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2015)



This artifact is based on our prototype optimization coach for the SpiderMonkey (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Projects/SpiderMonkey) JavaScript engine. An optimization coach is a performance tool that aims to provide programmers with insight into how their compiler optimizes their programs and to help them better harness the optimization process. It does so by reporting optimization near misses, i.e., reports of optimizations that the compiler did not apply, but could apply if the program were to be modified slightly. This artifact provides the necessary environment, programs and data to repeat our experiments, and to allow readers to run our tool on JavaScript programs of their choice
