Subject [jira] Created: (IO-201) CountingInputStream is partially synchronized

CountingInputStream is partially synchronized
---------------------------------------------

                 Key: IO-201
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-201
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Filters
    Affects Versions: 1.4
            Reporter: Sebb


CountingInputStream is only partially synchronized.

The count is not synchronized when it is updated in read operations, so is not guaranteed
to be published correctly

The synchronization could be removed without loss of functionality.

Not sure it makes sense to share a stream between threads anyway, as the underlying stream
is unlikely to be thread-safe.

If only one thread reads the stream, then the count field could be made volatile.
This would allow other threads to read the count safely.
