Subject [jira] [Created] (CAMEL-11623) LevelDB Java implementation wont be tried on Errors
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2017 10:39:00 GMT
Mart Kartašev created CAMEL-11623:

             Summary: LevelDB Java implementation wont be tried on Errors
                 Key: CAMEL-11623
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: camel-leveldb
    Affects Versions: 2.19.2
            Reporter: Mart Kartašev

For a bit of background, we have been running into a problem with the LevelDB JNI drivers
for AggregationRepositories, which prevents startup when using routes for which we require
persistent aggregation. This, however, is not the main topic of this issue.

In the latest version (2.19.2) the following issue has implemented a Java specific leveldb

The relevant part of the Error on startup is as follows: 

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Could not load library. Reasons: [no leveldbjni64-1.8 in java.library.path,
no leveldbjni-1.8 in java.library.path, no leveldbjni in java.library.path, C:\Users\atos\AppData\Local\Temp\leveldbjni-64-1-794362262645531032.8:
Can't find dependent libraries]

at org.apache.camel.component.leveldb.LevelDBFile.start( 

The way that I understand the code added in issue 11427, is that the LevelDBFile class getFactory()
method (line 181) will first try to initiate with the JNI drivers and if that fails, will
turn to the pure Java implementation. This is done by catching an Exception which is then
ignored incase the JNI driver fails.

However, when we look at the code we see that UnstatisfiedLinkError does not extend Exception,
it extends Error.

This Error is therefore not caught by the application and thus the Java implementation for
LevelDB is never even attempted to be initialized as the method execution ends exceptionally
at that point.

So the main two questions are: 
1) Was the code intended to catch this UnsatisfiedLinkageError (I know Errors are often considered
a bad thing to catch) as a means to substitute the JNI driver, incase it fails?
2) If it is not supposed to catch this error, how can I use the pure Java implementation in
this case? I expect that trying to exclude relevant packages also wont work as it will directly
try to initiate the the JNI implementation by its name, which would fail also with an Error.

So, in summary:
Is line 194 in class LevelDBFile in the camel-leveldb component supposed to catch an Error
or more generally a Throwable instead of Exception?
