Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4545) TomcatJAASRealm keeps reference to undeployed EAR/WAR's classloader
Date Thu, 21 May 2009 09:52:45 GMT


Ivan commented on GERONIMO-4545:

Seems that ContainerBase.getRealm() method will automatically delegate the request to its
parent if no realm is found in its own scope, so we may not need to explicitly set the default
realm for the context if we do not find any realm setting for the application itself.

> It looks to me like the TomcatJAASRealm (its name is "DefaultJAASRealm") is a standard
realm that is used by all WARs without explicit configuration. Setting the realm of a GeronimoStandardContext
makes the context store a reference to its realm AND makes the realm store a reference to
the context (see org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase#setRealm() which GeronimoStandardContext
inherits). Thus, the default realm's reference is always directed to the context of the WAR
deployed most recently. This reference keeps the context from being GCed even if the corresponding
WAR has been undeployed in the meantime.
