Subject NamingContext Possible Bug
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 15:30:43 GMT
Hello folks,

In NamingContext implementation, if "lookup()" is a Reference, current 
implementation caches the result of the NamingManager # getObjectInstance via 
following statements and changes the type of the entry. In the following 
lookups, same object is returned. I would like to write ObjectFactory that 
returns new instance for each time lookup is called on its reference. But with 
the current implementation, it is not possible to write such an object factory 
because of aferomentioned sitaution. I think that entry must be stay as 
Reference instead of changing entry type.


NamingContext class:

protected Object lookup(Name name, boolean resolveLinks)
        throws NamingException {
            } else if (entry.type == NamingEntry.REFERENCE) {
                try {
                    Object obj = NamingManager.getObjectInstance
                        (entry.value, name, this, env);
                    if (obj != null) {
                        entry.value = obj;                            
                        entry.type = NamingEntry.ENTRY;  ---> CHANGES type of 
the naming entry
                    return obj; 
                } catch (NamingException e) {
                    throw e;
                } catch (Exception e) {
                             ("namingContext.failResolvingReference"), e);
                    throw new NamingException(e.getMessage());
