Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-481) Possible race-conditions in hashCode of the range classes
Date Sat, 14 Nov 2009 10:03:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-481?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12777861#action_12777861

Henri Yandell commented on LANG-481:
------------------------------------

*Range classes deleted. Need to figure out a fix for the hashCode data-race reordering. Seems
that we need to cache the value or work it out in the constructor.

> 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
