Subject IBATIS-496: indefinite wait in Throttle.increment()
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2008 12:18:43 GMT

We have a web application running on Tomcat, using the Commons JDBC
connection pool and iBatis 2.2. Our app uses a single "SqlMapClient"
instance for all our database access.  After 7-10 days, the application
doesn't have any database connections anymore. At first we thought we're
running out of MySQL connections, but then we did a Tomcat stack trace dump
("kill -3" to Tomcat in Linux - quite useful) and found tens of threads, all
stuck in the same method:

   java.lang.Thread.State: WAITING (on object monitor)
at java.lang.Object.wait(Native Method)
at java.lang.Object.wait(Object.java:485)
at com.ibatis.common.util.Throttle.increment(Throttle.java:70)
- locked <0x5a26fca8> (a java.lang.Object)

So all of them are stuck in an infinite wait().  I dug around the bugs, and
this seems to have happened before (e.g., IBATIS-249), but it doesn't seem
to be fixed in 2.3 (to which we switched).  So in the meantime, I thought
about modifying the "Throttle.java" constructor to not have an indefinite
wait time; this way, I hope to get an exception rather than a hanging

Is this a good idea?  If so, I had trouble compiling iBatis 2.3 in Eclipse -
there we a lot of external libs missing.  This may be a dumb question - but
where can I find a list of libraries there?  The "jar-dependies.txt" in
Batis 2.3 just list some optional ones, but then some source classes use
"org.apache.ojb.broker.PersistenceBroker" and
"javax.transaction.UserTransaction" and Hibernate - can I just delete these
if I want to just use iBatis directly?
