Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-2526) Questionable processing of interruptions in TcpTransport::doStop
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2009 02:37:53 GMT
Questionable processing of interruptions in TcpTransport::doStop

                 Key: AMQ-2526
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Transport
    Affects Versions: 5.3.0, 5.2.0
            Reporter: Nick

Imagine you are processing a few jobs by a thread pool. A timeout is set for the whole batch.
A job should send a JMS message. If the timeout expires before all the jobs are completed
the pool will interrupt still running jobs. 

Most of the time the interruption will be caught and processed deep inside of ActiveMQ TCP
transport classes. While I'm not entirely convinced it's a good idea to shut down and reopen
the connection to the ActiveMQ server if a client thread is merely interrupted what really
seems ugly is:

15:12:53,745 ERROR [org.apache.activemq.transport.tcp.TcpTransport] Could not stop service:
tcp:///x.x.x.x:61616. Reason: java.lang.InterruptedException

and the reason for it is that the await call on the CountDownLatch in TcpTransport::doStop
will throws an InterruptedException if the calling thread is already interrupted. No attempt
is made (in both 5.2 or 5.3) to gracefully process InterruptedException, the exception itself
is logged as ERROR with a rather menacing message and the log file gets full of meaningless
stack traces although no real harm was done.

Calling latch.await(1,TimeUnit.SECONDS) in a try block seems like a no-brainer but there could
be even smarted approaches to processing InterruptedExceptions differently than, say, IOEs
and other genuine problems.
