Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-4113) Wrong cache key generated in OGNL 3.0.5/3.0.6
Date Sat, 08 Feb 2014 03:44:20 GMT

] commented on WW-4113:

How about Using class instance and methodName as cache key will be a optimal solution, one
important thing is Class hasn't overwrite Object's equals method, this mechanism is similar
to the implement of apache beanutil.
class MethodDescripter {
    private Class cls;
    private String methodName;
    public boolean equals(Object obj) {
        return cls.equals(md.cls) && methodName.equals(md.methodName);
    public int hashCode() {

>             Project: Struts 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Expression Language
>    Affects Versions: 2.3.4,, 2.3.7, 2.3.8, 2.3.12, 2.3.14,,,, 2.3.15
>            Reporter: Kevin Su

>              Labels: patch
>             Fix For: 2.3.16
> Struts since 2.3.4 (maybe earlier as well) has dependency on ognl.OgnlRuntime 3.0.5 /
3.0.6.  OgnlRuntime 3.0.5/3.0.6 has a bug in the cache implementation to look up the getter
and setter methods.  The hashCode of the action class (in combination to the hashCode for
the name of the property) is used as a unique key into the cache of getter and setters.  
> Since hashCode can not be relied on to be unique, setting the property on the target
action class may fail because the wrong method from another action is returned.
> The latest implemenation of OgnlRuntime in Apache commons has the proper implementation.

> We are currently using our own patched version of 3.0.6 to work around the issue.  However,
we'll like to see this resolved so we don't need to maintain our own private version of Ognl.
> Is there a plan to migrate the dependency to the Apache commons distribution of Ognl?
If not, we'll be happy to share our fix.
