Subject [jira] [Commented] (POOL-228) Unit test failure in TestGenericObjectPoolClassLoaders
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 00:47:33 GMT


Liviu Tudor commented on POOL-228:

Problem is caused by the {{assertEquals}} in the following block (line 42):

GenericObjectPool<URL> pool1 = new GenericObjectPool<URL>(factory1);
assertEquals("Wrong number of idle objects in pool1", 1, pool1.getNumIdle());

The trouble seems to rise from the fact that the constructor sets the {{minIdle}} by default
to 0 (zero); the call to {{setMinIdle}} sets it to 1 (one) and then the call to {{setTimeBetweenEvictionRunMillis(100)}}
schedules an eviction run in 100msecs. Therefore, bearing in mind the 200msecs sleep right
afterwards would mean that by the time we reach the {{assertEquals}} the pool would be pre-populated
with {{minIdle}} items.
However, the eviction procedures exits right away if the pool is empty (which makes sense,
there is nothing to evict!). 
So the question here is:
* do we change the unit test to assert the number of *existing* idle objects in the pool to
be zero (please note that the unit test checks for the existing idle objects not minimum idle
objects, which is set in previous step!) OR
* do we change the eviction to prepopulate to {{minIdle}} instances?
