Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-3142) CASImpl.reinit doesn't properly check magic number
Date Mon, 05 Aug 2013 15:04:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-3142?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13729557#comment-13729557

Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-3142:

There is some other code that does this same reading / writing - maybe could be refactored...
both would need updating.
Deferring past 2.4.2 as there's some small chance that introducing this will break backwards

> Binary CASes have a magic number at the beginning of the file/stream: "UIMA". Currently,
this information is only used to check the byte order (first byte is checked for being U).
> CASImpl should also check if the other bytes of the magic number are correct and if not,
it should throw an exception.
