Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQCPP-407) Application crashes after stopping message broker
Date Thu, 31 May 2012 22:52:23 GMT


Timothy Bish commented on AMQCPP-407:

The scenario shown above shouldn't happen as the ActiveMQConnection should go through the
close() cycle when the destructor is called if it hasn't already been closed.  During the
close the Transports have their close method called which eventually reaches IOTransport::close.
 The IOTransport will stop its dispatch thread which is the thread that's calling the onException
method via the registered ExceptionListsner.  In IOTransport close the dispatch thread is
joined which should halt ActiveMQConnection close until such time as the last onException
fire is finished.  So the solution here is to determine what is causing this to not happen.

Adding a get / set  synchronization won't likely help here or worse will make the problem
even more random and therefore much harder to reproduce and fix.  The issue being that a synchronization
is only serializing the get / set operation on exception listener, so if your scenario above
is indeed happening there's still nothing stopping the event firing from reading the exception
listener before another thread sets it to null.  Locking the entire onExcption callback chain
will most likely lead to an unexpected deadlock as the code attempts to deal with errors from
the exception thread which will be holding locks that block the other threads accessing the
ActiveMQConnection and associated resources.  

Mutex's are often treated as a panacea for threading problems.  

If you can readily reproduce this then I'd advise stepping into the IOException close method
or adding some console output in there to see if the close is bypassing the Thread join because
of some other exception.  One solution could be to use a finalizer class in there to ensure
that the thread is always joined.
