Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1425) testProtocol hangs with 10.1 client talking to 10.2 server

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-1425:

Comment from Knut Anders on derby-dev:

It seems like the hang is in fact caused by a bug in
DDMReader. dssIsChainedWithDiffID and dssIsChainedWithSameID are not
reset in initialize(), so values from a previous session might be
used. In this particular case, the old values made
DDMReader.getCurrChainState() return an incorrect value, which again
made calls to DDMWriter.finalizeChain() a no-op. The protocol test
therefore never sent the DRDA commands it thought it had sent, and
both sides ended up waiting for data from the other one.

It is not clear to me whether this bug actually can be triggered
outside the protocol test since the client driver doesn't use
DDMReader/DDMWriter. The way DRDAConnThread uses those classes should
be safe, as the server always reads a command before responding and
the fields seem to be set to reasonable values at each read.

Anyway, setting those two fields to false in DDMReader.initialize()
made the hang go away, and derbynetclientmats runs cleanly with that
