Subject [jira] Commented: (VFS-309) ThreadLocal memory leak in DefaultFileContent
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2011 08:37:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-309?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12989095#comment-12989095
] 

Bernhard Reichl commented on VFS-309:
-------------------------------------

In the case of getting a zip file the workaround with DefaultFileContent.close() does not
work as for all files within the zip file the ThreadLocal object is still valid and will not
deleted by gc.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-309
>             Project: Commons VFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.0
>         Environment: Tomcat servlet container
>            Reporter: jontro

> When using commons vfs in a servlet container the ThreadLocal values stored will not
be released once the request finishes.
> There needs to be a method to clear these values otherwise the data will leak into the
next request.
> This was detected with tomcat 6.0.26. Upon undeploying an app that uses commons vfs tomcat
detects the leaks with a huge amount of the following messages:
> A web application created a ThreadLocal with key of type [java.lang.ThreadLocal] (value
[java.lang.ThreadLocal@52fb241d]) and a value of type [org.apache.commons.vfs.provider.FileContentThreadData]
(value [org.apache.commons.vfs.provider.FileContentThreadData@6600167a]) but failed to remove
it when the web application was stopped. To prevent a memory leak, the ThreadLocal has been
forcibly removed.
