Subject [jira] [Created] (JCR-3292) Workspace move in concurrent environment causes inconsistencies
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2012 11:58:18 GMT
Workspace move in concurrent environment causes inconsistencies

                 Key: JCR-3292
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3292
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.4, 2.2.11
            Reporter: Unico Hommes
         Attachments: WorkspaceMoveTest.patch

Attached is a test case that shows that using workspace move concurrent with other write operations
causes inconsistencies.

The problem is that unlike session move, workspace move operates on the local item state directly
(session move operates on transient item state). When a concurrent modification occurs on
for instance the source parent of the moved target the modification that the move operation
was trying to do is overwritten as the changes from the concurrent session are pulled in:

- on thread 1 a workspace.move is initiated on /folder1/node to /folder2/node, removing the
child node entry from /folder1 a.o.t.
- session 2 on thread 2 modifies and saves /folder1, overwriting the changes on the local
item state of /folder1 in session 1 
- thread 1, still in the workspace move operation, sends the updates to the shared item state

I don't see any easy fixes for this problem. Probably the design of the BatchedItemOperation
needs to modified quite a bit.
