Subject BufferOverflowException While Sending Response
Date Sat, 10 Aug 2013 08:02:03 GMT
After upgrading to Http Core 4.3, one of the integration tests intermittently fail with the
following error:

2013-08-10 00:54:21,501 [-] [PassThroughMessageProcessor-1] ERROR PassThroughNHttpGetProcessor
Error generating ?wsdl output for service : StockQuoteProxy
	at java.nio.HeapByteBuffer.put(
	at org.apache.http.nio.util.SimpleOutputBuffer.write(
	at org.apache.http.nio.entity.ContentOutputStream.write(

This is a very specific scenario, where Synapse doesn't mediate the request, but responds
to the HTTP request on its own (WSDL generation scenario). Any idea what could have cause
this issue?

My guess is this is a race condition at the output buffer. SimpleOutputBuffer is not thread
safe as per the HTTP Core API docs. But it is being accessed by server worker as well as the
IO dispatcher in this particular scenario. I tried using the SharedOutputBuffer and it seems
to fix the problem (need to test this further). Is this is a reasonable solution?
