Subject [jira] Commented: (POOL-113) Inconsistent synch in InvalidEvictorLender, GenericKeyedObjectPool, GenericObjectPool
Date Tue, 11 Dec 2007 10:53:43 GMT


Sebb commented on POOL-113:

The report was generated by Findbugs. I've just re-run it against current trunk, and it shows
the same errors (amongst others).

If the class is intended for use from multiple threads, then it is vital that all fields that
can be updated in one thread and read in another are synchronised on the same object. The
Findbugs report shows that some fields can be accessed without synchronisation. The Java memory
model only guarantees that such accesses see the most recent value if the accesses to the
field are all synch on the same object (or volatile is used). Synchronisation is necessary
for visibility as well as mutual exclusion.

In fact in this case, the fields are mainly primitive booleans, so synch is not needed for
exclusion when updating. However it is needed for visibility between threads.
