Subject Replication fallback question
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2011 20:51:10 GMT

I have a technical question :

what happens if we try to send a replicated entry, expecting that the 
consumer is present, but is disconnected just while writing the entry in 
this method :

     private void handleWriteFuture( WriteFuture future, Entry entry, 
EventType event, SyncModifyDn modDnControl )
         // Let the operation be executed.
         // Note : we wait 10 seconds max
         future.awaitUninterruptibly(); <<<<---- here

         if ( !future.isWritten() )


I'm afraid that we will remain locked forever in the 
awaitUninterruptibly call.

Now, if we add a timeout, I have another question : the timeout might be 
reached, but the consumer is still consumer. Do we have a mechanism that 
check regularly that the consumer is not back again (I mean, available)?
