Subject [jira] [Created] (OFBIZ-9564) [FB] Package org.apache.ofbiz.base.lang

Dennis Balkir created OFBIZ-9564:

             Summary: [FB] Package org.apache.ofbiz.base.lang
                 Key: OFBIZ-9564
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-9564
             Project: OFBiz
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: base
    Affects Versions: Trunk
            Reporter: Dennis Balkir
            Priority: Minor

- ComparableRange.java:70, HE_EQUALS_USE_HASHCODE

HE: org.apache.ofbiz.base.lang.ComparableRange defines equals and uses Object.hashCode()

This class overrides equals(Object), but does not override hashCode(), and inherits the implementation
of hashCode() from java.lang.Object (which returns the identity hash code, an arbitrary value
assigned to the object by the VM).  Therefore, the class is very likely to violate the invariant
that equal objects must have equal hashcodes.

If you don't think instances of this class will ever be inserted into a HashMap/HashTable,
the recommended hashCode implementation to use is:

public int hashCode() {
  assert false : "hashCode not designed";
  return 42; // any arbitrary constant will do

- ComparableRange.java:76, REC_CATCH_EXCEPTION
REC: Exception is caught when Exception is not thrown in org.apache.ofbiz.base.lang.ComparableRange.equals(Object)

This method uses a try-catch block that catches Exception objects, but Exception is not thrown
within the try block, and RuntimeException is not explicitly caught. It is a common bug pattern
to say try { ... } catch (Exception e) { something } as a shorthand for catching a number
of types of exception each of whose catch blocks is identical, but this construct also accidentally
catches RuntimeException as well, masking potential bugs.

A better approach is to either explicitly catch the specific exceptions that are thrown, or
to explicitly catch RuntimeException exception, rethrow it, and then catch all non-Runtime
Exceptions, as shown below:

  try {
  } catch (RuntimeException e) {
    throw e;
  } catch (Exception e) {
    ... deal with all non-runtime exceptions ...
