    problem passivating SFSB

    Arbi Sookazian Master

      I have a Seam2.0.0.GA app with JBoss4.2.1.GA. This particular SFSB has the following instance variables defined and I added a @PrePassivate callback handler method to close and null out JDBC related objects, etc.

      What are you supposed to do with List objects that are not serializable??

      SFSB partial code:

      @Stateful
      //AS 041508 - testing session scope for conversation ended error
      @Scope(ScopeType.SESSION)
      @Name("techDeployToUser")
      public class TechDeployToUserAction implements TechDeployToUserLocal{
      
       @Logger
       Log log; //externalizable (according to Pete Muir) which implements serializable
      
       @In
       private FacesMessages facesMessages; //serializable
      
       @In
       Identity identity; //serializable
      
       @In (required=false)
       UTbUser user; //serializable
      
       @In
       Context sessionContext; //not serializable
      
       private List<TbHardwareObject> hardwareTableList = new ArrayList(); //not serializable
       private List<TbHardwareObject> locationsList = new ArrayList(); //not serializable
       private List<TbHardwareObject> userLocEquipList = new ArrayList(); //not serializable
       private List<TbHardwareObject> newlyAssignedByTechEquipList= new ArrayList(); //not serializable
       private List<TbHardwareObject> removedFromUserEquipList = new ArrayList(); //not serializable
      
       Connection con = null; //not serializable
       Statement stmt = null; //not serializable
       PreparedStatement preparedStmt = null; //not serializable
       ResultSet rs = null; //not serializable
       StringBuffer sqlStringBuffer = null; //serializable
      
       List assignedToTechHardwareList = new ArrayList(); //not serializable
       String locNo; //serializable
       String techLocMsg = ""; //serializable
       String userLocMsg = SHIMSConstants.USER_MSG; //serializable
      
       String month="", day="", year="", localAssignedDate=""; //serializable
       Map params; //not serializable
      
       String msgConfirm; //serializable
       String compId; //serializable
       String compMsg; //serializable
       String techLocationName; //serializable
       String userLocationName; //serializable
       String networkLogin; //serializable
      
       boolean isAssignToTechBtn = true; // n/a
       boolean isSubmitByTechBtn = true; // n/a
      
       Date now = new Date(); //serializable
       TbLocationEntityDAO tbLocationDAO = null; //not serializable
       TbHardwareObject tbHardwareObject = null; //not serializable
      ...
      }


      more partial code:
       @PrePassivate
       private void cleanupBeforePassivation() {
       log.info("inside cleanupBeforePassivation()");
       cleanUp();
       con = null;
       stmt = null;
       preparedStmt = null;
       rs = null;
       }

          what are the repurcussions or problems of a failed passivation?? how will it affect the next use case execution?

            Problem resolved by setting an additional instance variable to null in the @PrePassivate method:

            private void cleanUp()
             {
             try
             {
             if (rs != null)
             {
             rs.close();
             }
             if (preparedStmt != null)
             {
             preparedStmt.close();
             }
             if (stmt != null)
             {
             stmt.close();
             }
             if (con != null)
             {
             con.close();
             }
            
             }
             catch(SQLException e) {
             e.printStackTrace();
             }
             }
            
            @PrePassivate
             private void cleanupBeforePassivation() {
            
             cleanUp();
             con = null;
             stmt = null;
             preparedStmt = null;
             rs = null;
            
             params = null; //<-- root cause identified! at least this variable not being set to null causes the
             // javax.ejb.EJBException: Could not passivate; failed to save state error...
             }


            Alternative fix is to not use the Map params variable as an instance variable, but as multiple local instances.

            The stack trace is very misleading:

            Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jaxen/VariableContext


            when that class is actually residing in the JBOSS_HOME/server/default/lib/jaxen.jar...
