    Wildfly9: cancelled ejb timers persist in data/timer-service-data

    John Whitley Newbie

      I have a Singleton bean whch creates a elb.timer on deployment. Before doing so it cancels any existing timers previously created by the bean for completeness.

       

      In wildfly 8 the cancelled timers were removed from data/timer-service-data/'bean'. In wildfly 9 CR1, they stay in data/timer-service-data/'bean' and appear to be re-instated on re-deployment

       

      This is an example of a timer previously cancelled

       

      2015-06-11 16:04:49,788 INFO  [TravelSingleton] (EJB default - 2) initialise: timer [id=8cd3a667-9a89-4919-99c1-34906a7a1e75 timedObjectId=travel5.travel5-ejb.TravelSingleton auto-timer?:false persistent?:false timerService=org.jboss.as.ejb3.timerservice.TimerServiceImpl@50b7224f initialExpiration=Tue May 05 15:08:41 BST 2015 intervalDuration(in milli sec)=5000 nextExpiration=Tue May 05 15:47:41 BST 2015 timerState=ACTIVE info=TravelSingleton] TravelSingleton

       

      Since I cancel them, it is not actually interferring with my functionality but is this to be expcted?

          What API(s) are you using to fetch that information and log? Can you post relevant code?

           

          Also, can you try this against 9.0.0.CR2 which has been released today Announcement: WildFly 9.0.2.Final released and see if it reproducible on that too?

            I've switched to 9.0.0.CR2 and the timers are still left in data/timer-service-date.

             

            The code is:

             

            private final static String TIMERID = "TravelSingleton";
            @Resource
            private SessionContext context;
            public static final int TIMER_TICK = 5;

             

            @PostConstruct
            @Lock(LockType.WRITE)

             

            public void initialise() {
                TimerService timerService = context.getTimerService();
                logger.info("initialise: create timerService: " + timerService);
            //    maps = Collections.synchronizedMap(new HashMap<Integer, MapObject>(97));

             

            // Timers persist across deployments: cancel any we recognise and create a new one

                Collection<Timer> t = timerService.getTimers();
                for (Timer timer : t) {
                    logger.info("initialise: timer " + timer + " " + timer.getInfo());
                    String info = (String) timer.getInfo();
                    if (info.equals(TIMERID)) {
                        timer.cancel();
                        logger.info("initialise: kill");
                    }
                }
                timerService.createTimer(60000, TIMER_TICK * 1000, TIMERID);   // tick every 5 seconds after 60 seconds
            }

             

            When I deploy this is the relevant part of the log:

            I am amending my code to pick up the persisted timer but it just make it a bit more inconvienient if I wish to change the timer parameters

              So just to understand this completely - you are still seeing those files for those timers that you cancelled, *after* the (transactional) method (@PostConstruct in this case) has completed its execution?

                Can you please create a JIRA for this here WildFly - JBoss Issue Tracker and attach a simple application to reproduce this? Someone should then be able to look into it.
