Subject [jira] [Commented] (CURATOR-84) More flexibility for InterProcessMutex extensions
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2014 22:57:19 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CURATOR-84:

Github user karkum commented on the pull request:
    Hmm, let me make sure I understand:
    * In ```InterProcessMutex```, we expose the actual lockPath being used by the lock (which
could be either ephemeral or persistent).
    * This would allow any user of ```InterProcessMutex``` to take care of clean up/notification
steps based on whether the lock of that path actually exists or not.
    I think this makes sense, but I'm not sure if it is ideal to expose the actual lock path
used by this recipe. What if a client is using the default implementation (with ephemeral
nodes), then getting the path would be pretty useless, since that node would be deleted once
connection is lost right?

> I have a need for a durable InterProcessMutex. Main reason for this are processes with
critical sections, where I can not afford to loose a lock due to session expiration. In such
case, others might acquire a lock and kick in while the previous process is still running
but e.g. experiencing connection issues. To kill this temporally detached process in favor
of others would be too costly.
> To achieve such behavior, I need lock nodes to be created in PERSISTENT mode. This is
not possible to do easily with currently implementation of locks due to few internal scoped
classes and methods. I would like to change this.
