Subject [jira] Updated: (ODE-262) Duplicated correlation set values is accepted and creates a second instance instead of throwing an exception
Date Fri, 19 Dec 2008 21:06:44 GMT

Karthick Sankarachary updated ODE-262:

    Attachment: unique-correlation-set-for-branch.patch

The attached patch implements the "unique" attribute extension on the <correlationSet>
element as shown below:

<correlationSet name="name" properties="p1 p2 ..." unique="yes|no">

To illustate its use, we apply this attribute to the classical counter example described above.
In order to keep duplicate "init" messages from instantiating multiple (process) instances,
you will need to constrain the correlation set defined on that message type to be "unique",
like so:

-    <b:correlationSet name="name" properties="t:counterProp"/>
+    <b:correlationSet name="name" properties="t:counterProp" unique="yes"/>

Consequently, every time that correlation set is initialized in a start activity, the server
will check to see if there are any instances running with that correlation value. If such
an instance does exist, then the server responds with an appropriate SOAP fault message. If,
and only if, no such instance is found, does the server create a new instance.

By way of an example, the first time you send an "init" message with the name "foo", as shown
below, the server will start a new instance with that name.


The second time you send an "init" message with the same name ("foo"), you will get a fault
message back, as shown below:    

         <faultstring xmlns:axis2ns1="http://www.apache.org/ode/type/extension">axis2ns1:duplicateInstance</faultstring>
            <fault xmlns="http://www.apache.org/ode/type/extension">Found a duplicate
instance with the same message key</fault>

On the other hand, if you send an "init" message with a different name (say "bar"), as shown
below, then the server will go ahead and start another instance with the new name.
Note that care was taken to deal with race conditions caused by duplicate messages that arrive
at the exact same instant. As for the proposed extension to make correlation sets durable,
that has been deferred for now, in part because it involves a performance penalty.

> Tomcat
> The counter example of infoq.

>   Original Estimate: 1h
>  Remaining Estimate: 1h
> The classical counter example of infoq (http://www.infoq.com/articles/paul-brown-ode)
can be used. Sending the "init" message for the second (third, fourth, ... ) time with the
value "foo" will create a new instance. I was expecting a CorrelationViolation exception when
the second init message is arriving.
> All upcoming messages are then correlated with the last instance only.
