Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3911) BTreeController.reclaim_deleted_rows() may hide exceptions
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2009 13:37:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3911?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12688688#action_12688688

Tiago R. Espinha commented on DERBY-3911:

Interestingly enough, by changing the return statement into the finally block on Kathey's
example, we still get the NPE and the code doesn't return successfully.

I think it remains a mystery to why this was happening in the first place on the original
case. Even having the exception happening inside the finally block, the last exception to
happen (and to not be caught) should stop the thread it is executing on, right?

>         Attachments: derby-3911.diff
> BTreeController.reclaim_deleted_rows() contains this piece of code:
>         catch (java.lang.ClassCastException cce)
>         {
>             // because we give up the latch on the leaf before entering this
>             // routine, the page might change from a leaf to branch.  If that
>             // happens this routine will get a ClassCastException, and we
>             // just give up trying to reclaim space.
>         }
>         finally
>         {
>             if (controlRow != null)
>                 controlRow.release();
>             return(purged_at_least_one_row);
>         }
> It intentionally hides ClassCastExceptions, but it also unintentionally hides all other
exceptions because of the return statement in the finally clause.
