Subject [jira] Created: (TOMAHAWK-1040) Apparent File Handle Leak with Tomahawk 1.1.5 or 1.1.6 with MyFaces 1.1.5
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2007 03:56:05 GMT
Apparent File Handle Leak with Tomahawk 1.1.5 or 1.1.6 with MyFaces 1.1.5

                 Key: TOMAHAWK-1040
             Project: MyFaces Tomahawk
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.1.6, 1.1.5
         Environment: Linux version
Java 1.5.0_09-b03
Tomcat 5.5.20

            Reporter: Derek C. Ashmore
            Priority: Critical

We experienced a file handle leak when using Tomahawk components that require static resources,
such as the JSCookMenu, Calendar, and Tabbed Pane.  The handle allocations never go away.
 Eventually, the container becomes inoperative and has to be restarted.

We experience this bug under Tomahawk 1.1.5 and 1.1.6 using Myfaces 1.1.5.  We do *not* experience
the leak under Myfaces/Tomahawk 1.1.3.  I have no information about whether the bug appears
under 1.1.4.

We detected the leak behavior by monitoring our container process using lsof.

Although it's a hack and I don't like it, I was able to avoid the leak by writing a custom
AddResource class (and changing the configuration so that my custom class was used instead
of the default).  My custom AddResource class works by caching request resources and preventing
more than one I/O to a given resource.

My source code (for what it's worth) is attached below.  I'd be happy to provide additional
information -- I would rather see this bug fixed in 1.1.6 then have my hack around for ever.

Thanks for looking at this.
