Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46103] Review various possible bugs detected by Jtest
Date Tue, 28 Oct 2008 11:51:21 GMT

Thanks for the effort and thanks for sharing the results.

You might wonder, why the use of such a sophisticated tool like JTest doesnt
produce more 'sophisticated' bug-warnings: in the last two years the Batik
code-base has been analysed from time to time with Findbugs and the detectors
in the IntelliJ IDE. So most of the interesting (and mechanically findable)
bugs have been found and removed already...
The names of the authors show, that these are parts of Batik, which havent been
touched since quite a while - 'stable code'.

Most of the 'sync on non-final' - warnings are known to me - no urgent action
needed. I'd prefer to make those fields final or private, but that changes the
API of the class. 
I will have a look on those conditional expressions with fixed outcome.

If you want to test the capabilities of your tool, you might try an older
version of Batik - there have been some interesting bugs. 

OTOH, when you have a new, state-of-the-art detector waiting to see some
non-trivial real world code, then Batik is the right food for it.
