Subject [jira] [Created] (WW-4662) StreamResult closes outputstream early
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2016 12:14:20 GMT
Michael Hum created WW-4662:

             Summary: StreamResult closes outputstream early
                 Key: WW-4662
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.5
            Reporter: Michael Hum

We recently upgraded from struts 2.3.x to 2.5.2 at our workplace. One of the changes we noticed
was with stream result - if an error occurs, the output stream is automatically closed and
no response is sent to the user (ignoring our custom error-500 page). The content-length of
the response is thus 0 - a blank page.

This is occuring due to the addition of try-with-resources. In 2.3.x, the output stream wasn't
set until after we find the input stream, like so:

try {
   get inputStream
   if (inputStream == null)
        throw Exception
   get outputStream
} finally {
   if inputStream != null inputStream.close()
   if outputStream != null outputStream.close()

However, in 2.5, this was changed to use a try-with-resources on the output stream (;a=commit;h=3fab155b4cc530ca3ca0b69299ddcb348eb5f26d):

try (OutputStream oOutput = oResponse.getOutputStream()) {
// ...

So, when we throw an error, the stream is closed and nothing further is written. 

Is this intended behaviour? Is there an alternate solution to show our own error pages now
(with stack trace?)?
