Subject [jira] Commented: (AXISCPP-922) Resource leak in AttachmentHelper::extract_Attachment
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2006 01:47:09 GMT
    [ ] 

Emanuel Norrbin commented on AXISCPP-922:

There is actually another leak just a few lines down for binary attachments.

Starting from line 93 in server\apache2\AttachmentHelper.cpp:

             char* binaryBody = new char[attachment.length() + 1];
             strcpy(binaryBody, attachment.c_str());

A char[] is allocated on the first line but SoapAttachment ::addBody(char* pchBinaryBody)
does not take over the pointer, it allocates a new one and copies the argument.

So, either binaryBody should be deleted (using delete[]) or addBody should take a reference
to the pointer and make sure to delete it later. SInce addBody(xsd__base64Binary* objBody)
takes over the pointer maybe addBody(char* pchBinaryBody) should do so also for efficiency.

> This is a very easy bug to spot and fix:

>             base64_attachment = AxisUtils::decodeFromBase64Binary(attach);		
> In Java this code would be fine but in C++ is is a resource leak,
> the first new is not needed since decodeFromBase64Binary will allocate the xsd__base64Binary.
> I suggest replacing the two lines with this one:
> xsd__base64Binary*  base64_attachment = AxisUtils::decodeFromBase64Binary(attach);
