Subject [jira] [Commented] (TEPHRA-194) Transaction client should not retry startShort() if an invalid timeout is given
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2016 00:07:58 GMT

GitHub user anew opened a pull request:


    [TEPHRA-194] Make startShort() throw IllegalArgumentException …

    … consistently for invalid timeout values.
    Previously, it was throwing IllegalArgumentException in-memory and Exception for thrift
    This breaks down into:
    - adding a new exception to the thrift stubs to be able to communicate back any exception
    - adding a new method startShortWithTimeout that throws that exception
    - modifying the TransactionServiceThriftClient to convert that exception back into an
    - modifying the TransactionSystemTest to expect IllegalArgumentException now
    - modifying the ThriftTransactionServerTest to use a retry strategy that counts retries
and validate that the number of retries is 0 if startShort() throws IllegalArgumentException
    - modifying TransactionServiceClient to accept a class name as the retry strategy provider
(needed for above test case)
    - some unrelated but reasonable style fixes

>             Fix For: 0.10.0-incubating
> Currently, if an invalid timeout (negative, or too long) is given, the Tx manager throws
an IllegalArgumentException. The thrift client will catch that and apply the retry strategy.
However, in this case, retry is pointless, and if the strategy is, for example, exponential
backoff, if introduces unneccessary load and latency. 
> The service should instead throw a meaningful exception for that, so that the client
knows not to retry.
