Subject Async API call
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2013 06:53:46 GMT
       I am using this JUnit test( example from Apache HTTP Components as 
it is ). I am sending JSON to a Netty server which is able to receive 2 
and also send responses. I believe Netty can receive more requests but 
that might be a different issue.

Here even for the 2 POSTS that Netty receives and sends responses the 
callback methods are not called. I was thinking this unit test will 
complete and the JVM will exit. But it doesn't happen.

When does 'future.get' return ? Does it return as soon as it sends and 
receives a response ?

Since I am a new user I could be making some minor mistakes  but the code 
is able to send and the server receives the JSON.


    public void testAsyncThread() throws InterruptedException {
        // Use pool of two threads
        ExecutorService threadpool = Executors.newFixedThreadPool(2);
        Async async = Async.newInstance().use(threadpool);

        Request[] requests = new Request[] {
).bodyString(getJSon(), ContentType.APPLICATION_JSON),
).bodyString(getJSon(), ContentType.APPLICATION_JSON),

        Queue<Future<Content>> queue = new LinkedList<Future<Content>>();
        // Execute requests asynchronously
        for (final Request request: requests) {

                Future<Content> future = async.execute(request, new 
FutureCallback<Content>() {

                public void failed(final Exception ex) {
                        logger.info(ex.getMessage() + ": " + request);

                public void completed(final Content content) {
                        logger.info("Request completed: " + request);

                public void cancelled() {
                        logger.info("Request cancelled: " + request);


        while(!queue.isEmpty()) {
            Future<Content> future = queue.remove();
            try {
                Content c = future.get();
                logger.info( "Response " + c.asString() );
            } catch (ExecutionException ex) {
                        logger.info( "ExecutionException [" + 
getExceptionAsString( ex ) + "]" );
