Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4918) Minor refactoring of SPSDescriptor
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2010 12:45:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4918?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12966513#action_12966513
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4918:
-------------------------------------------

Patch 2a looks like a nice cleanup. +1

One small nit is that some people (for instance these guys: http://pmd.sourceforge.net/rules/strictexception.html#AvoidThrowingNullPointerException)
claim that throwing a NullPointerException is confusing and recommend using IllegalArgumentException
instead. Not that it's supposed to ever happen...

> The class SPSDescriptor is kind of hard to understand, and doesn't quite follow the pattern
used by other tuple descriptors. Parts of the code don't agree with the documentation (i.e.
SPS_TYPE_TRIGGER marked as not implemented)
> This issue tracks work to make the class easier to understand and to modify.
> The critical part that may need to be changed is the use of synchronized (this). The
problem is that database locks are obtained within the critical regions, and in some special
cases this causes deadlocks. I'm not yet certain this can be fixed at this level (only), but
I'll continue investigation.
