Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-2283) platform security: m_permissions memory leak

platform security: m_permissions memory leak

                 Key: FELIX-2283
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2283
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Framework Security
    Affects Versions: framework.security-1.0.0
            Reporter: Reto Bachmann-Gmür

Constant growth of memory using platform security 1.0.0 results in heap overflow as memory
usage incerases with permission checks.

Having a look at it I found two problems, for which I can submit a patch:
- a value from m_permissions is never retrieved, as the PemissionsInfo Array is never equals
to an existing key
Solution: invoke get with an instance of Entry, change Entry.equals to check for deep equality
of array-entries
- as the Persmissions instance kept as (non-weak) reference in the m_permissions values references
the PermissionInfo[] key-entry, none of them can be garbage collected. As a result the size
of m_permissions constantly grows
