Subject Memory Leak - solution
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2005 18:38:55 GMT

I would like to post some comments about memory handling with user defined parameters (whith
those that are send to the web server and those that are received from the web server). In
previous posts (see mail below) I already mentioned memory leak, because user defined parameters
are never deleted. 

Reason why I can't deleted allocated memory was in compiler settings: I use setting "multithreaded
run time library" instead of "multithreaded DLL run time library". I think this should be
mentioned (or alerted) before users start developing their own examples. I spent one week
to figure this out. If this is already mentioned then I apologize. 

Now I was able to delete xsd_string types, for an example:

 if(sBlpType != NULL){
   delete [] sBlpType;
 sBlpType = NULL;

The problem was still with the xsd_double, xsd_int or similar types. I put delete statement
in Axis_DeSerialize_setReturnAddPointsParameter method:

int Axis_DeSerialize_setReturnAddPointsParameter(setReturnAddPointsParameter* param, IWrapperSoapDeSerializer*
xsd__double * dAmount = NULL;
 if ((dAmount = pIWSDZ->getElementAsDouble( "dAmount",0)) != NULL){
    param->dAmount = *( dAmount );
    delete dAmount;
    dAmount = NULL;

The last thing was parameters of xsd_string type that are send to the web server. They are
added with statement addParameter for an example:

m_pCall->addParameter((void*)Value1, "sMSISDN", XSD_STRING);

Inside axis_dll there is new allocation created for those types, but it is never deleted.
I checked Param.cpp file and destructor statement:

Param::~Param ()
  case XSD_STRING:
     if (AxisEngine::m_bServer){
        delete [] const_cast<char*>(m_Value.pStrValue);

So allocated memory is only deleted when Axis is initialized as server. Why? With commenting
this condition string data type is deleted with no memory leak.
Is this wrong?

Subject: Memory Leak

Hi again

I'm trying to solve the problem with the memory leak on the client side of axis library. 

I've next function which is called in multithreaded way:

setReturnAddPointsParameter* pRAPP = NULL;
MPBLPSoap pBLP_authorize(sMPG.strURL.c_str(), APTHTTP1_1);
pRAPP = pBLP_authorize.AddPoints(1,string_number,double_value);

pRAPP is structure with next parameters:
xsd__string sBlpType;
xsd__double dAmount;
xsd__string lTransactionID;

The problem is how to delete allocated space for these parameters when I don't needed it any
more. There is defined delete function
Axis_Delete_setReturnAddPointsParameter which is defined:

void Axis_Delete_setReturnAddPointsParameter(setReturnAddPointsParameter* param, bool bArray
= false, int nSize=0)
  if (bArray)
     delete [] param;
     delete param;

So I called this function when I want to delete allocated memory for parameters. This function
calls destructor:

which is empty. If I use statements delete or free inside destructor I get the following error
"User breakpoint called from code at ***". 
So I checked how are basic types defined (xsd_string, xsd_double). They are defined as classes
and their destructors are empty. If I put delete statements into these destructors then the
result structure pRAPP is empty, because parameters are deleted before they can be used (destructor
is called after calling this method: xsd__string
SoapDeSerializer::getElementAsString (const AxisChar * pName, const AxisChar * pNamespace).

So is it possible to delete allocated memory or is there a problem in design structure of
axis library? I mean is it possible to delete allocated memory for basic type classes? Is
solution in defining some extra methods which they have access to those classes and they include
delete statement?

Best regards
