在Hotspot VM中,设计者设计了OOP-Klass模型用来描述class的属性和行为,这里的OOP并不是面向对象编程(Object-oriented programming), 而是Ordinary Object Pointer(普通对象指针),之所以设计为OOP和Klass两部分是因为不希望每个对象都有一个C ++ vtbl指针, 因此,普通的oops没有任何虚拟功能。 相反,他们将所有“虚拟”函数转发到它们的klass,它具有vtbl并根据对象的实际类型执行C ++调度。


oopDesc是对象类的最高基类。 {name}Desc类描述了Java对象的格式,因此可以从C++访问这些字段。 oopDesc是抽象的。

 class oopDesc {
  friend class VMStructs;
  friend class JVMCIVMStructs;
  // 对象头  
  volatile markOop _mark;
  // 元数据
  union _metadata {
    // 对应的Klass对象  
    Klass*      _klass;
    narrowKlass _compressed_klass;
  } _metadata;



typedef class oopDesc*                            oop;
typedef class   instanceOopDesc*            instanceOop;
typedef class   arrayOopDesc*                    arrayOop;
typedef class     objArrayOopDesc*            objArrayOop;
typedef class     typeArrayOopDesc*            typeArrayOop;



class Klass;
class   InstanceKlass;
class     InstanceMirrorKlass;
class     InstanceClassLoaderKlass;
class     InstanceRefKlass;
class   ArrayKlass;
class     ObjArrayKlass;
class     TypeArrayKlass;

Klass对象提供: - 1:语言级别的类对象(方法字典等) - 2:为对象提供虚拟机调度行为

    class Klass : public Metadata {
      friend class VMStructs;
      friend class JVMCIVMStructs;
      // If you add a new field that points to any metaspace object, you
      // must add this field to Klass::metaspace_pointers_do().
      enum { _primary_super_limit = 8 };
      // The "layout helper" is a combined descriptor of object layout.
      // For klasses which are neither instance nor array, the value is zero.
      jint        _layout_helper;
      // 类名
      // Class name.  Instance classes: java/lang/String, etc.  Array classes: [I,
      // [Ljava/lang/String;, etc.  Set to zero for all other kinds of classes.
      Symbol*     _name;
      // Cache of last observed secondary supertype
      Klass*      _secondary_super_cache;
      // Array of all secondary supertypes
      Array<Klass*>* _secondary_supers;
      // Ordered list of all primary supertypes
      Klass*      _primary_supers[_primary_super_limit];
      // java.lang.Class镜像类
      // java/lang/Class instance mirroring this class
      oop       _java_mirror;
      // 父类
      // Superclass
      Klass*      _super;
      // First subclass (NULL if none); _subklass->next_sibling() is next one
      Klass*      _subklass;
      // Sibling link (or NULL); links all subklasses of a klass
      Klass*      _next_sibling;
      // All klasses loaded by a class loader are chained through these links
      Klass*      _next_link;
      // 加载该类的类加载器
      // The VM's representation of the ClassLoader used to load this class.
      // Provide access the corresponding instance java.lang.ClassLoader.
      ClassLoaderData* _class_loader_data;
      // 修饰符
      jint        _modifier_flags;  // Processed access flags, for use by Class.getModifiers.
      // 访问权限
      AccessFlags _access_flags;    // Access flags. The class/interface distinction is stored here.
      // 偏向锁实现
      // Biased locking implementation and statistics
      // (the 64-bit chunk goes first, to avoid some fragmentation)
      jlong    _last_biased_lock_bulk_revocation_time;
      markOop  _prototype_header;   // Used when biased locking is both enabled and disabled for this type
      jint     _biased_lock_revocation_count;
      // 虚拟表长度
      // vtable length
      int _vtable_len;
      // Remembered sets support for the oops in the klasses.
      jbyte _modified_oops;             // Card Table Equivalent (YC/CMS support)
      jbyte _accumulated_modified_oops; // Mod Union Equivalent (CMS support)
