Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRMINA-822) Deserialising classes that do not implement Serializable fails
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2011 21:18:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRMINA-822?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13008139#comment-13008139

Rob Eden commented on DIRMINA-822:

I agree with Ulrich's patch. There's no explanation of why OOS/OIS are being overridden the
way they are (original SVN change is 597545: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/mina/trunk/mina-core/src/main/java/org/apache/mina/core/buffer/AbstractIoBuffer.java?r1=594412&r2=597545)
and from all I can see they're just creating issues.

If backwards compatibility of the protocol is desired, it can be changed to always write "0"
and then leave the reading portion as-is.

>             Project: MINA
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.2
>            Reporter: Ulrich Kreher
>         Attachments: AbstractIoBuffer.patch
> AbstractIoBuffer uses ObjectStreamClass.lookup(Class) which returns null for classes
that do not implement Serializable. This in turn leads to a NullPointerException a few lines
below in resolveClass(ObjectStreamClass) where the ObjectStreamClass-parameter is null.
> Deserialising a non-serialisable class is completely legal, instances of such a class
will already fail to serialise so they will never get to deserialisation.
> Using ObjectStreamClass.lookupAny(Class) will solve this issue, but it is not available
before Java 6.
