Subject [jira] [Commented] (THRIFT-4564) TBufferedTransport can leave corrupt data in the buffer
Date Sun, 27 May 2018 20:02:00 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on THRIFT-4564:

bforbis opened a new pull request #1558: THRIFT-4564: Reset buffered transport on serialization
   Tested locally using the following thrift IDL on thrift v0.10.0
   struct Foo {
     1: string name
   service SocketTestService {
     i16 countFoos(1: list<Foo> foos)
   The following client request will fail on the client side, but leave data on the buffer:
   client.countFoos([new thriftTypes.Foo(), null, new thriftTypes.Foo()]);
   Using the new code, the client side error will be caught and the buffered transport will
be reset, allowing for the socket to be used for a subsequent RPC call without causing a parse
error on the server side

> The cause of the issue is because I pass in *null* as a parameter to my Foo list, which
does not have a write() method to serialize itself when writing to the buffer. That's okay
on its own, but what ends up happening here is we have *half* of a message still written to
our buffered transport, meaning that a subsequent RPC call on that same transport will fail
to be processed on the server side.

> *Proposal*: We should allow applications to have global persistent socket connections
that don't corrupt their buffer if there is a serialization error when doing an RPC all on
the client. Calls to send_${RPC_NAME} should be wrapped in a try / catch in case there are
client side errors in the processing code. In the case that an exception is thrown, the buffer
in buffered transport should be emptied rather than leaving it full.
> *Side Note*: The cause of the client-side exception has been fixed in Thrift 0.11.0
in this [Pull Request|],
which casts undef to a new struct. But I fear that this issue where hanging data on the buffered
transport isn't cleaned up could come up again.
