Subject [jira] Created: (OPENJPA-343) Do not call setRollbackOnly on inactive Transactions
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2007 13:15:30 GMT
Do not call setRollbackOnly on inactive Transactions

                 Key: OPENJPA-343
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: kernel
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0, 0.9.7
            Reporter: Kevin Sutter

While in the middle of processing an afterCompletion invocation in BrokerImpl, an unexpected
RuntimeException (IndexOutOfBoundsException) occurred within some underlying WebSphere code.
 While we (OpenJPA) were attempting to clean up after that exception, we attempted to call
setRollbackOnly on the current transaction.  But, since we were in the process of completing
the current transaction, it is invalid to be calling setRollbackOnly and we ended up getting
an IllegalStateException from the WebSphere Transaction Manager.  Due this second exception,
we ended up losing track of the original exception and this became a difficult problem to

This issue will be used to correct a couple of issues (at least):

1)  We should ensure that the transaction is active before calling
setRollbackOnly().  When an exception happens during afterCompletion 
processing, the Transaction can no longer accept setRollbackOnly 

2)  When an unexpected exception happens like this, we should log the
exception before attempting to process the exception.  In this particular
case, we lost the original exception when we ran into the IllegalStateException
from the Transaction service.  This forced us to re-run the scenario just to
get a trace of the exception.

3)  Or, if we don't want to log the exception immediately, we need to determine why we lost
the first exception in the first place and ensure that doesn't happen again.
