Subject [jira] [Commented] (GORA-210) thread safety
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2013 16:36:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GORA-210?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13587236#comment-13587236

Roland commented on GORA-210:

Hi Renato,

yes, that's what I think at least :)
from [1]:
"Returns a synchronized (thread-safe) map backed by the specified map."
"It is imperative that the user manually synchronize on the returned map when iterating over
any of its collection views"

My interpretation is: as long as we do not create an interator for our buffer [Iterator i
= buffer.iterator()] there is no need for manual synchronization.
My tests show "this works for me", but I might be wrong?! (my java knowledge is very limited)

> This is the result of debugging one of my issues described in NUTCH-1534.
> I think there is a wrong assumpation about thread safety of LinkedHashMap, it is not
enough to not iterate over the buffer (which is a LinkedHashMap).
