    IllegalStateException: could not acquire lock on @Synchroniz

    Arbi Sookazian Master

      Don't know how to reproduce this one but it's happening on noteAction which is a session-scoped SFSB which is injected into a conversation-scoped SFSB. I have seen it a few times now even after I restart Jboss 4.2.2. What does this exception mean (i.e. why can't it acquire a lock?)

      Exception during request processing:
      Caused by javax.servlet.ServletException with message: "javax.el.ELException: /adminSecurityAudit.xhtml @92,108 rendered="#{noteAction.getRenderNoteGraphic(myAuditList.getRowIndex(), 'accountApproved')}": java.lang.IllegalStateException: could not acquire lock on @Synchronized component: noteAction"

        • 1. Re: IllegalStateException: could not acquire lock on @Synchr
          Arbi Sookazian Master

          Ok I was able to reproduce it. I had two debug breakpoints in Eclipse. One in the submit() method of the session-scope SFSB and one in a @WebRemote demarcated method in the same SFSB for Seam remoting use from a function in a .js file. Both methods were being called in this use case.

          When I cleared the two breakpoints and restarted JBoss (no code changes) and ran the use case again, the exception did not happen.

          Is this normal behavior or a bug? thx.

            when I removed *only* the breakpoint for the Seam remoting method, it works fine. Code for Seam remoting method below...

            public void setNoteData(Integer rowIndex, String colName, String siteId, String employeeNumber, Boolean icomsAccountApproved, Boolean securityLevelApproved, Boolean adjustmentLimitApproved){
            
             log.info("in setNoteData: rowIndex = " + rowIndex);
             log.info("in setNoteData: colName = " + colName);
             log.info("in setNoteData: siteId = " + siteId);
             log.info("in setNoteData: employeeNumber = " + employeeNumber);
             log.info("in setNoteData: icomsAccountApproved = " + icomsAccountApproved);
             log.info("in setNoteData: securityLevelApproved = " + securityLevelApproved);
             log.info("in setNoteData: adjustmentLimitApproved " + adjustmentLimitApproved);
            
             setRowIndex(rowIndex);
             setColName(colName);
             setSiteId(siteId);
             setEmployeeNumber(employeeNumber);
