I've been getting:
java.lang.IllegalStateException: A CMR collection may only be used within the transction in which it was created
when load testing an application.
I have a pair of entity beans being accessed - Identity & IdentityProperties. There's a 1-M CMR between the two entities. Additional there's a helper method on the Identity that does this:
public Map getPropertyMap()
Map result = new HashMap();
Set properties = getIdentityProperties();
for (Iterator i = properties.iterator(); i.hasNext(); )
IdentityPropertyLocal p = (IdentityPropertyLocal) i.next();
[ it's the i.hasNext() that throws the Exception ]
This is part of a Web application where many sessions may share the same identity. Because reading in the identity can be a bottle neck, I have set all the get* methods to be read-only in the deployment descriptor:
The Entities are called from a Stateless Session bean that has all methods Transaction Required (and I've also tried setting Transaction Mandatory on the Entities).
Everything works fine when using the site as a single user, but when I've been load testing, as the number of users goes up I start getting the CMR exception.
I can only think of 2 possibilities; either the transaction is getting "lost" under load, or somehow seperate transactions are sharing the iterator. Neither is a comforting thought.
Has anyone else had similar problems?
I've been load testing without the read-only setting and I don't get the error - however there performance gets quite bad when I have > 200 users, and I suspect this is due to them reading from a shared identity and locking it for the duration of a transaction. So I would really like to be able to run this with the read-only setting.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
