Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-481) Possible race-conditions in hashCode of the range classes
Date Wed, 12 Aug 2009 18:57:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-481?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12742521#action_12742521

Boris commented on LANG-481:
----------------------------

Henri, as far as I can see all the classes I mentioned in my report have the problem. All
other classes I looked at not because they don't use the member-variable as a temp to calculate
the value.
There is one exception from my first list (at least in current trunk): org.apache.commons.lang.math.Range
looks safe

So it comes down to this classes:
org.apache.commons.lang.math.DoubleRange
org.apache.commons.lang.math.FloatRange
org.apache.commons.lang.math.IntRange
org.apache.commons.lang.math.LongRange
org.apache.commons.lang.math.NumberRange

>    Affects Versions: 2.4

> The hashCode() methods of the range classes look very suspicious to me. The value is
lazily initialized, but the calculation is done _on the cached value. With some unlucky timing
a caller may get an incomplete hash.
> An unlucky sequence of Code could be something like
> T1:        if (hashCode == 0) // true
> T1:            hashCode = 17;
> T2:         if (hashCode == 0) // now false because hashCode was already set to 17
> T2:         return hashCode; // return 17
> T1:            hashCode = 37 * hashCode...........
> where T1 and T2 are different threads accessing the method in parallel and T2 gets the
wrong hash "17".
> Affected classes are
> org.apache.commons.lang.math.DoubleRange
> org.apache.commons.lang.math.FloatRange
> org.apache.commons.lang.math.IntRange
> org.apache.commons.lang.math.LongRange
> org.apache.commons.lang.math.NumberRange
> org.apache.commons.lang.math.Range
> Possible fix: calculate the hash on a temporary variable and finally assign it to the
member
