Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-6303) [JDWP] Fix a potential crash problem that would happen if String object is GCed
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2009 07:00:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6303?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12744931#action_12744931

Mark Hindess commented on HARMONY-6303:

Jim, it may be critical but it can't be critical for *5.0*M11 since it is a 6.0 fix.  Or am
I missing something?

In the statement [1] as following shows, if the string object for which we are trying to read
its ID has been GCed actually, the string ID we retrieved would be null as a result. Hence
if we pass the null value to the follwing jni invocations [2], crash would happen. The solution
is that we should return the error code to the upper level when the string object is GCed
in this case. 
> [1] jstring stringObject = m_cmdParser->command.ReadStringID(jni);
> [2] jsize len = jni->GetStringLength(stringObject);
>      jsize utfLen = jni->GetStringUTFLength(stringObject);
