> There is a race condition in the jUDDI codebase which causes transient registry failures.
> The symptom of the race condition is the following error message
>   E_busy (10400) The request cannot be processed at the current time. The Registry is
currently unavailable.
> The class containing the race condition is org.apache.juddi.registry.local.Registry
> Every call to Registry.getRegistry() results in the recreation and initialisation of
a global variable (registry). As the assignment of the global variable is made *before* the
initialisation method is called there exists a window of opportunity whereby a caller can
obtain a reference to an uninitialised registry. The consequence of this is that calls to
RegistryEngine.isAvailable() can return false.
> I'm not sure why the RegistryEngine is being recreated on every call but the current
code is unsafe (even if ignoring multiprocessor memory models). There should not be a global
reference to the registry if it is a requirement to recreate it on every invocation. If it
is not a requirement then the initialisation should really be occurring within a static block.
