Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-4766) [drlvm][thread] ThreadGroup.destroy() does not destroy groups with non-started threads
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2007 00:22:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-4766?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12529592

Ilya Berezhniuk commented on HARMONY-4766:

I suggest following approach for ThreadGroup.destroy() behavior:

1) Allow  destroying for group with non-started threads, i.e. stick to RI behavior.
2) Allow  destroying for group with subgroup with terminated thread, i.e. follow the spec.

I've submitted a patch to HARMONY-4361. This patch changes destroy1010 functional test to
check described behavior (this means that this test will pass on Harmony and fail on RI).

> While investigating HARMONY-4361 I've discovered that ThreadGroup.destroy() behavior
does not match RI behavior.
> I did not experiment with daemon groups, but for non-daemon groups ThreadGroup.destroy()
throws j.l.IllegalThreadStateException when trying to destroy thread group containing thread
which is not started yet.
> API spec. says: "This thread group must be empty, indicating that all threads that had
been in this thread group have since stopped"
> In other words, it should be possible to destroy group containing stopped thread, and
also containing subgroups with stopped threads.
> Spec. says nothing about non-started threads... 
> I've wrote simple test to check RI behavior, and on both Sun and BEA VMs it's OK to destroy
group with a thread which is not started yet.
> Harmony throws exception for not started threads.
> It's possible that some points in my test are incorrect, but it's evident that Harmony
behavior essentially differs from RI behavior.
