text/BidiWrapper issue?

         Key: HARMONY-100
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-100
     Project: Harmony
        Type: Bug
    Reporter: Vladimir Gorr

Let's consider the following test:

import java.text.Bidi;
public class Test {
	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		Bidi bd = new Bidi(new char[] { 's', 's', 's' }, 0, 
				new byte[] { (byte) -7,	(byte) -2, (byte) -3 }, 
		System.out.println("Expected 7, real " + "     " + bd.getLevelAt(0));

In my opinion the JNI implementation of Bidi (text/BidiWrapper.c file, ubidi_1setPara() function)
contains a potential bug, namely:
1. If  the embeddingLevels  argument is not NULL then _embeddingLevels variable is initialized
with the JNI GetByteArrayElements() function;
2. ICU function (ubidi_setPara) initializes ICU inner structure and puts the _embeddingLevels
into it;
3. If _embeddingLevels pointer is not NULL then the JNI ReleaseByteArrayElements() function
(with 0 as fourth parameter) is called.
    This function releases the memory (according to JNI specification) the _embeddingLevels
pointer refers to;
4. After that ICU inner structure isn't initialized properly. Call of ICU ubidi_getLevels()
function can return incorrect values (see java test above).

It seems the JNI_COMMIT parameter instead of "0" should be passed to the ReleaseByteArrayElements()
to avoid this problem.

I'd like to underline the test mentioned above works w/o any issues for Harmony-14 contribution
(although it shouldn't sometimes IMHO).
Therefore if there are any doubts in my argumentation this issue can be closed as invalid.
