Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4819) add error reporting to ReplicationMessageTransmit.java MasterReceiverThread.run()
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2010 08:22:33 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4819?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-4819:

    Attachment: remove-msgReceiver.diff

It turns out that the msgReceiver field that's set to null in the error handler is not actually
used except locally in startMessageReciverThread(). The other methods only set it to null
and never actually use it. The attached patch removes the field and instead makes it a local
variable in startMessageReciverThread(). It doesn't help with error reporting, but at least
it simplifies the error handling a bit.

> While working on DERBY-4812, I noticed the following code in MasterReceiverThread,run().
> I am not familiar enough with replication to know if the MasterReceiverThread can recover
from such errors.  If it cannot i think it would better to have a clear failure at the time
of the error than just a subsequent NullPointerException.
> As the todo says, the exceptions should at least be logged.
> Also I just noticed this one bit of code, so don't know if there are similar issues or
TODO's elsewhere in replication code.

>                     // TODO: print problem to log

>                     // TODO: print problem to log
>                     // If we get an exception for this socket, the log shipper
