What's the runtime performance penalty incurred for using class files that were compiled with debug information (specifically line numbers)? I know the class files will be larger but I don't care about file size. Basically I want to have extremely useful stack traces with line numbers in production. I just don't want to kill performance in the process. Hopefully it's not too bad. Thanks, Bob

The best thing for you to do is test it both ways with your application and see what the difference is. I doubt there is any, but I didn't run any tests.
