Subject [jira] Updated: (CAMEL-1583) ldap component is not thread safe
Date Mon, 04 May 2009 05:26:40 GMT


Christopher Hunt updated CAMEL-1583:


Changes to the 1.6.1 branch.

In essence a context is retrieved from the registry each time that an exchange is to be produced.

Given that the contract for an InitialContext states:

_An InitialContext instance is not synchronized against concurrent access by multiple threads.
Multiple threads each manipulating a different InitialContext instance need not synchronize.
Threads that need to access a single InitialContext instance concurrently should synchronize
amongst themselves and provide the necessary locking._

The registry entry should either: (a) provide an InitialContext that is known to be thread
safe; or (b) ensure that the registry instantiates a new bean each time that the bean is looked
up. The latter will be the general situation and so, for example with Spring IOC, use a bean
declaration similar to:

	<!-- Directory Context -->
	<bean id="ldapserver" class="" scope="prototype">
				<prop key="java.naming.factory.initial">com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory</prop>
				<prop key="java.naming.provider.url">ldap://localhost:10389</prop>
				<prop key="">none</prop>

It is important to use a prototype scope to ensure that a new directory context is obtained
for each exchange produced.

> JNDI context objects are not thread-safe. The LDAP component shares a directory context
across all threads that use the component. This is not safe.
> In addition the LDAP component will attempt to establish a connection on instantiation
of the component, and not when the component is required to process requests. If the LDAP
server is not ready e.g. temporarily unavailable then the entire Camel application will stop.
> JNDI directory contexts should be established when a consuming thread needs it and should
be released when the thread is finished with the component i.e.:
> {code}
> ctx = new InitialDirContext(env);
> try {
>   ...
> } finally {
>   ctx.close();
> }
> {code}
> The above will release the connection with the LDAP server as soon as possible. The existing
component relies on JNDI to release the socket in its own time (several seconds later).
