Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCS-73) concurrent cache access causes values loss
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 05:52:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCS-73?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13492973#comment-13492973
] 

Alexander Kleymenov commented on JCS-73:
----------------------------------------

Here:
.     // get previously stored value
.     def res = cache.getFromGroup(idx-1, group)
we retrieve value written to the cache on previous iteration.

The problem is: some values just written to the cache can't be retrieved. When test detects
this, it prints:
.     ERROR: for 8204 in Thread-9

Sometimes after several 'get' retries these lost values become accessible. Test notifies:
.     ERROR FIXED for 521: [value:[a:1, b:2, c:3], aux:[1:a, 2:b, 3:c, t:Thread-8]] Thread-11

While 'get' retries are not successful (values looks lost), test prints:
.     ERROR STILL PERSISTS for 8204 in Thread-9

> The following groovy code demonstrates the problem: several threads write to the cache
and try to read previously written values. Sometimes just written values can't be retrieved.
In this case, subsequent tries can get the value, but not always.
