> Every now and then we encounter deadlock situations which involve the Felix.acquireGlobalLock
method. In our use case we have the following aspects which contribute to this:
> (a) The Apache Felix Declarative Services implementation stops components (and thus causes
service unregistration) while the bundle lock is being held because this happens in a SynchronousBundleListener
while handling the STOPPING bundle event. We have to do this to ensure the bundle is not really
stopped yet to properly stop the bundle's components.
> (b) Implementing a special class loader which involves dynamically resolving packages
which in turn uses the global lock
> (c) Eclipse Gemini Blueprint implementation which operates asynchronously
> (d) synchronization in application classes
> Often times, I would assume that we can self-heal such complex deadlck situations, if
we let acquireGlobalLock time out. Looking at the calles of acquireGlobalLock there seems
to already be provision to handle this case since acquireGlobalLock returns true only if the
global lock has actually been acquired.
> This issue is kind of a companion to FELIX-3000 where deadlocks involve sending service
registration events while holding the bundle lock.
