[jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-8067) Possible deadlock when creating new ClassInfo entries in the cache

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-8067?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16088706#comment-16088706 ]

John Wagenleitner commented on GROOVY-8067:

So guess the question would be whether the responsibility lies with the caller of {{ExpandoMetaClass#enableGlobally}} to check first to see if already enabled or whether that method should not clear if already enabled.

The enableGlobally call does already check and only clears if the {{ExpandoMetaClassCreationHandle}} is not the current handle.  In tracing the calls to clearModifiedExpandos when running the sample project grails-javamelody-issue the plugin triggers 2 calls to clearModifiedExpandos, first call in {{ExpandoMetaClassCreationHandle#create}} (via {{ExpandoMetaClass.enableGlobally}}) and second one in {{MetaClassRegistryImpl#setMetaClassCreationHandle}} (via the before mentioned create call).  So even with the old {{ManagedLinkedList}} (in Groovy 2.4.8) the plugin would have removed 2 modified expandos, those for {{org.grails.plugins.codecs.URLCodec}} and {{org.grails.encoder.impl.JavaScriptCodec}}.

>             Project: Groovy
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: groovy-runtime
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.8
>            Reporter: John Wagenleitner
>            Assignee: John Wagenleitner
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 2.4.9
>         Attachments: ClassInfoDeadlockTest.java
> When running Groovy without {{-Dgroovy.use.classvalue=true}} the ClassInfo instances are cached in a {{ManagedConcurrentMap}} (MCM).  New values are computed on demand and computation involves both a lock on a segment within the MCM and a lock on the {{GlobalClassSet}} (GCS) which is backed by a {{ManagedLinkedList}}.  The problem is that both the ManagedConcurrentMap and the GlobalClassSet share the same ReferenceQueue.
> Assume there is an enqueued {{ClassInfo}} value that is stored in Segment2 of the MCM.  Now assume that Thread1 and Thread2 both request {{ClassInfo.getClassInfo(..)}} for two different classes that do not currently exist in the cache.  Assume that based on hashing Thread1 gets a lock on Segment1 and Thread2 gets a lock on Segment2.  Assume that Thread1 is the first to call computeValue which in turn calls {{GlobalClassSet.add(..)}}.  This call adds a new value to a {{ManagedLinkedList}}, and since it's managed the add operation will process the ReferenceQueue. So Thread1 will attempt to dequeue the ClassInfo and the finalizeReference method on it's entry will attempt to remove it from Segment2. Thread2 holds the lock for Segment2 and Thread2 is blocked and can't progress it's waiting on the the lock Thread1 holds the lock for the GlobalClassSet, so deadlock occurs.
