In high load scenarios with many threads, the call to Introspector.getBeanInfo(Class,Class) causes high synchronization resulting in system stall

      Description

      I have a high load scenario, where a Clustered Web frontend does Webservice calls to a Backend Webservices.
      There are around 200 Threads handling the webservices.
      The CPU load of the machine went to near zero.
      Using dynatrace, we realized, that all the calls went through BeanUtils.getPropertyQnameList, which in turn calls Introspector.getBeanInfo(beanClass, beanClass.getSuperclass());
      This again calls WebAppClassLoader.loadClass(String name, boolean resolve), which is synchronized.

      I fixed this problem by modifying BeanUtil.getPropertyQnameList so that it caches BeanInfo objects.
