Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-2583) Exceptions in expand() corrupt the TransformHierarchy
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2017 16:28:00 GMT


Thomas Groh commented on BEAM-2583:

Specifically, this only happens if, during a call to {{expand}}, the call throws an exception;
that exception is caught or otherwise handled, and then the user attempts to continue to use
the pipeline. This is very much a bug in the user's code, but it may fail in a non-intuitive
sense (i.e. via NullPointerException)

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: sdk-java-core
>            Reporter: Kenneth Knowles
>            Priority: Minor
> Discovered recently during unrelated work that when a composite PTransform (Java) crashes
during expand - for example due to a validation failure - it leaves the Pipeline in a state
that throws NPEs when it is traversed.
> No one has complained, so it doesn't seem critical to fix the mutation logic. But we
should set a bit and poison all future uses of the corrupted pipeline.
