Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRAPI-149) LdapNetworkConnection should not create user-Threads
Date Fri, 28 Jun 2013 08:05:19 GMT
Christian Cwienk created DIRAPI-149:

             Summary: LdapNetworkConnection should not create user-Threads
                 Key: DIRAPI-149
             Project: Directory Client API
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0-M18
            Reporter: Christian Cwienk

When creating a LdapNetworkConnection, a 'NioThread' is created as a 'User-Thread' that handles
network IO. This thread lives for as long as the connection is not closed.

If the connection is not closed this will prevent the JavaVM from terminating, which may be
somewhat unexpected, since this behaviour is not explicitly documented.

My suggestion would be to change the io-Thread's type to be a 'daemon' thread. That way, not
closing an LdapConnection would not prevent the JavaVM from terminating.

example code snippet:

  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
    LdapConnectionConfig cfg = new LdapConnectionConfig();
   LdapConnection conn = new LdapNetworkConnection(cfg);

   //the JavaVM will never terminate, because the connection was not closed!
