Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-6041) Corba Binding is throwing a ObjectNotActive Corba exception being thrown back to application code on endpoint/bus shutdown
Date Thu, 09 Oct 2014 09:17:33 GMT
Keith Halligan created CXF-6041:

             Summary: Corba Binding is throwing a ObjectNotActive Corba exception being thrown
back to application code on endpoint/bus shutdown
                 Key: CXF-6041
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CORBA Binding
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1, 2.7.12
         Environment: Linux, and Windows, although should be evident on all platforms
            Reporter: Keith Halligan
             Fix For: 2.7.13, 3.0.2

On updating CXF from 2.3.5 to 2.7.12 in our product we noticed that our CorbaBinding tests
are failing during bus shutdown with the ORB (Orbix in this case).

It appears that a CXF commit around CXF 2.5 added a "deactivate()" call into the CorbaDestination.stop()
commit 88835b13e975c1716cc241c3caaf886c1f52ca40
Author: J. Daniel Kulp <>

    Fix problem with calling stop()on Corba endpoints not properly
    de-registering the endpoint.

    git-svn-id: 13f79535-47bb-0310-9956-ffa450edef68

This method gets hit during either Endpoint.stop() call or a Bus.shutdown() call, when we've
already published a Corba Endpoint (via the JAX_WS Endpoint.publish() api.  The stop()/shutdown()
results in an ObjectNotActive Corba exception being thrown.  From what I can see, I'd gather
we've one of two scenarios happening here:
 - There's another deactivate_object() call on a POA instance with the same oid, the second
call will emit an ObjectNotActive.
 - The objectId is never in the AOM, and deactivate_object() will throw the exception when
it can't be found.
Either way expecting the application code to catch such an exception isn't the right thing
to be doing IMO.

Below is a proposed git patch for 2.7.12 (it's identical for 3.0.1), that will have CXF consume
the ObjectNotActive exception, and just log (at info level) that it's being caught.
