Consider caching the compiled pattern in OperatorMatches [SPR-12610] #17211

Gary Russell opened SPR-12610 and commented

OperatorMatches invokes Pattern.compile() on the right operand on every invocation. This could be relatively expensive, especially with a complex regex, even with compiled SpEL.

In many cases, the regex will be a literal.

Consider caching (at least) the most recent compiled Pattern and reuse it if the right operand matches.

Affects: 4.1.4

Good point! We're caching all compiled patterns for each given 'matches' expression now.
