    failure situation using cluster-wide lock

    Lin Ye Novice

      I have a simple test for cluster-wide lock, and the code is attached. Basically, I created a timer, and schedule it to run a task every 5 seconds. When the task runs, it locks a key, gets the value, increases the value and puts it back. I tested with two instances running on my local node. Sometimes it works fine, one instance updates the value at a time. However, occasionally, after I killed the first instance, the second one failed to commit an update, while the thread was disconnected with the transaction (at STATUS_NO_TRANSACTION, so a rollback wouldn't work either), so the lock can not be released and no one could gain the lock anymore. I attached the ouputs from my 2 instances as well. For this standalone test, I was using JBossTX transaction manager.


      When I ran a similar test inside a ServiceMix container, it's easier to get into this situation after running two instances for a while, even without killing 1 instance. Inside ServiceMix, the Geromino transaction manager is used. If it's helpful, the exception at commit time inside ServiceMix is as following:
