Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-555) Write a thread-safe timer/interrupt based transaction timout implementation
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2005 08:16:35 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-555?page=all ]

David Jencks updated GERONIMO-555:
----------------------------------

    Fix Version:     (was: 1.0)
    Description: 
This is a long term research project that will probably take a month of concentrated effort.

We should investigate whether it is practical to have a thread safe timer/interrupt based
transaction timeout implementation.  A non-thread safe implementation was present prior to
revision 128441.

Among the issues that need to be investigated are the extent to which IO is actually interruptable
and what existing drivers do when they are interrupted.  For this to work, managed connections
that get interrupted during io must be reliably destroyed.

We should also investigate to what extent this provides a solution for deadlock resolution.

If we decide that this is impractical, we should change the internal time unit for timeouts
from milliseconds to seconds as proposed in GERONIMO-550
