Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-3728) Fix error handling in PrivilegedFileOpsForTests
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2008 09:03:45 GMT
Fix error handling in PrivilegedFileOpsForTests

                 Key: DERBY-3728
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3728
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Test
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Kristian Waagan
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For:

The exception handling in this utility class is unclear and can in some cases cause ClassCastException
to be thrown.
Note that SecurityException is a runtime exception.

Potential issues to be fixed:
 1) Avoid possibility of ClassCastException in 'getFileInputStream'
 2) Don't include SecurityException in the signature (throws clause)
 3) Document SecurityException in JavaDoc.

Points 2 and 3 leads to the option of not catching SecurityException, which allows the code
to be written more concisely and we can use PrivilegedAction instead of PrivilegedExceptionAction
in some cases.

There is also a missing character in the class name in the header, and an invalid JavaDoc
tag in the class JavaDoc.
