Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4081) BTreeController.comparePreviousRecord() may fail to release latch on left-most leaf
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2009 11:36:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4081?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-4081:

    Attachment: derby-4081-1b.diff

Attached a new patch (1b) with no changes from 1a except that a test case has been added to
NullableUniqueConstraintTest. The test case never completes without the fix because it runs
into a self-deadlock (or actually a livelock) caused by the latch it forgot to release. The
test case runs and completes successfully with the fix.

> If comparePreviousRecord() is called on some other leaf page than the left-most leaf,
and all the rows to the left of the current position are deleted so that the position is moved
all the way to slot 0 on the left-most leaf, comparePreviousRecord() will return without releasing
the latch on the left-most leaf. Only the leaf on which comparePreviousRecord() is called
should be latched when the method returns.
> Since comparePreviousRecord() currently fails to continue after finding a deleted row,
this bug is not possible to expose until DERBY-4028 is fixed.
