Subject [jira] Updated: (OPENJPA-251) org.apache.openjpa.enhance.Reflection.getDeclaredMethod() has undefined behavior, leading to VM-dependent crashes
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2007 16:31:26 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jonathan Feinberg updated OPENJPA-251:
--------------------------------------

    Attachment: weirdness.zip

The enclosed demonstration program gives the output

  public java.lang.String weirdness.TheImplementation.getIt()
  public java.lang.Object weirdness.TheImplementation.getIt()

on my machine, but gives the output

  public java.lang.String weirdness.TheImplementation.getIt()
  public java.lang.String weirdness.TheImplementation.getIt()

on a seemingly identical machine belonging to my colleague.

> Given 
> public interface A { Object getId(); }
> @Entity
> public class B implements A { 
>     @Id
>     public String getId() { return "foo"; } 
> }
> B.class.getDeclaredMethods() will include both "public java.lang.String B.getId()" and
"public java.lang.Object B.getId()". The order in which these two methods appear is NOT DEFINED!
Because org.apache.openjpa.enhance.Reflection.getDeclaredMethod()  returns the first matching
method, and because that method might well be the abstract one retuning Object, OpenJPA will
complain that it cannot persist an ID with a non-explicit strategy, and throw up.
> Class.getDeclaredMethod() (note singular, not plural) is defined to return the method
with the most specific return type under these circumstances, and should therefore be used.
Here's my implementation of Reflection.getDeclaredMethod:
> 	private static Method getDeclaredMethod(Class cls, String name, Class param)
> 	{
> 		Class[] params = param == null ? new Class[0] : new Class[] { param };
> 		try
> 		{
> 			return cls.getDeclaredMethod(name, params);
> 		}
> 		catch (Exception e)
> 		{
> 			return null;
> 		}
> 	}
