Subject [jira] [Created] (JAMES-1382) An incomplete fix for the resource leak bugs in NNTPHandler.java
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2012 01:29:48 GMT
An incomplete fix for the resource leak bugs in NNTPHandler.java

                 Key: JAMES-1382
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1382
             Project: JAMES Server
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: NNTPServer & Repository (removed)
    Affects Versions: 2.3.2, 2.3.1, 2.3.0
            Reporter: Guangtai Liang
            Priority: Critical

The fix revision 108172 was aimed to remove resource leak bugs on the BufferedReader object
"in" (created in line 192), the Socket object "this.socket", the OutputStream object "outs",
and the InternetPrintWriter object "out" in the method "handleConnection"of the file "/james/server/trunk/src/java/org/apache/james/nntpserver/NNTPHandler.java
(now moved to /james/server/branches/v2.3/src/java/org/apache/james/nntpserver/NNTPHandler.java)"
, but it is incomplete.

There are some problems: 
1. when "in" isn't created successfully but the temp InputStreamReader object is created successfully
(at line 193), the temp InputStreamReader object will be leaked. 
2. when the statements at lines 189-197 throw some exception, "this.socket" and "in" will
be leaked. 

The best way to close such resource objects is putting such close operations for all resource
objects in the finaly block of a try-catch-finally structure and then putting all other code
in a try block.

The problem still exists in the head revision (the temp BufferedInputStream object created
at line 233 and the "in" created at line 233 can be leaked). The buggy code is copied as bellows:

     * @see org.apache.avalon.cornerstone.services.connection.ConnectionHandler#handleConnection

    public void handleConnection( Socket connection )
            throws IOException {

        String remoteHost = "";
        String remoteIP = "";

        try {
            this.socket = connection;
            synchronized (this) {
                handlerThread = Thread.currentThread();
 232           // in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(socket.getInputStream(), "ASCII"),

 233           in = new CRLFTerminatedReader(new BufferedInputStream(socket.getInputStream(),

 234           remoteIP = socket.getInetAddress().getHostAddress ();
 235           remoteHost = socket.getInetAddress().getHostName ();
        } catch (Exception e) {

250        if (getLogger().isInfoEnabled()) {
            StringBuffer logBuffer =
                new StringBuffer(128)
                        .append("Connection from ")
                        .append(" (")
                        .append(") ");
258            getLogger().info(logBuffer.toString());

        try {
        } catch (Exception e) {
        } finally {
