Reflective systems and meta-level architectures offer increased modularity and flexibility. The benefit of such dynamism is often, but not necessarily, diminished by performance degradation. In this section we first give a rough idea of the cost of dynamic code introduced by JAVA reflection. Motivated by these results we then propose two optimizations to our system, and we discuss their performances.
