Subject [jira] Created: (SCXML-60) Possible race condition in AsyncTrigger

Possible race condition in AsyncTrigger

                 Key: SCXML-60
             Project: Commons SCXML
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.6
            Reporter: Andy Bailey
            Priority: Minor

In AsyncTrigger (used by SimpleSCXMLInvoker) a thread is started from inside the constuctor,
because of the java memory model the fields arent guaranteed to be written until after the
constructor ends, however the thread could start before this and so the values could be null.

To be safe the class should have a start method that gets invoked after the constructor.

  AsyncTrigger(final SCXMLExecutor executor, final TriggerEvent event) {
        this.executor = executor; = new TriggerEvent[1];[0] = event;
        new Thread(this).start();
 public void run() {
        try {
            synchronized (executor) {
        } catch (ModelException me) {
            log.error(me.getMessage(), me);
