    Clustering - StringIndexOutOfBoundsException Exception

    Prasad Ganguri Newbie

      We are clustering multiple instances of jboss. We are using RpcDispatcher to send the requests. When we try to make a method call on the client instances, they are throwing StringIndexOutOfBoundsException error, which is reflected in the server that tried to invoke the remote method.

      The code we are using is as follows:

      package com.test.cluster.jboss;

      import org.jgroups.*;
      import org.jgroups.blocks.*;
      import org.jgroups.util.*;

      //import java.util.ArrayList;
      //
      //import org.jboss.ha.framework.interfaces.*;
      //import org.jboss.ha.framework.server.*;

      import com.test.util.*;
      //import java.lang.reflect.Method;

      public class RpcDispatcherClient implements java.io.Serializable
      {
      private Channel channel;
      private RpcDispatcher disp;
      private RspList rsp_list;
      private String props;

      public RpcDispatcherClient() throws Exception
      {

      }

      public RpcDispatcherClient(String key, String id) throws Exception
      {
      invoke(key, id);
      }

      private void invoke (String key, String id)throws Exception
      {
      System.out.println("Props: " + props);

      /*
      HAPartition hapi = new HAPartitionImpl("DefaultPartition", new JChannel(props), true);
      hapi.registerRPCHandler("RpcDispatcherClient", this);

      //String localIP = InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostAddress();
      System.out.println("########################## before callMethodOnCluster method call...");

      System.out.println("########################## PartitionName: " + hapi.getPartitionName());


      System.out.println("########################## clusterview id: " + hapi.getCurrentViewId());

      ArrayList arr = hapi.callMethodOnCluster("CacheNotify", "invoke", new String[]{key,id}, true);

      System.out.println("arr.size: " + arr.size());

      System.out.println("########################## after callMethodOnCluster method call...");
      */
      }

      public void invokeCacheNotify(String key, String id) throws Exception
      {
      Notifiable notify = new Notify();
      notify.invoke(key, id);
      }

      public void start(String key, String id) throws Exception
      {
      try
      {
      channel = new JChannel(props);

      System.out.println("Is Channel connected? " + channel.isConnected());
      if (!channel.isConnected())
      channel.connect("DefaultPartition");
      System.out.println("Channel name? " + channel.getChannelName());
      disp = new RpcDispatcher(channel, null, null, this);

      System.out.println("Server Object name? " + disp.server_obj.getClass().getName());

      rsp_list = disp.callRemoteMethods(null, new MethodCall("invokeCacheNotify", new String[]{key,id}, new String[]{"java.lang.String","java.lang.String"}), GroupRequest.GET_ALL, 0);

      channel.close();
      disp.stop();
      }
      catch (Exception e)
      {
      e.printStackTrace();
      }
      }

      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
      try
      {
      new RpcDispatcherClient().start(args[0], args[1]);
      }
      catch(Exception e)
      {
      System.err.println(e);
      }
      }
      }


      The console output extract is:

      What is wrong with our code? Please help......

          Can you debug this ? Should be simple to find out what's wrong...

            I ran your code 10 times, without any exception.

            Can you reproduce this every time ?

              Hi Bela,

              I am getting this exception all the time I am calling the method.

              I know the code is created with the docuemntation we have from jbroups/jboss. But, I think we did something wrong in config or a different version of jdk or something like that......

                Well, then it should be simple to debug this and locate the code in which this fails.

                I debugged it, and it worked fine for me. Can you do this ?

                  Hi Bela,

                  Thanks for your time and interest to help me.

                  I got the problem fixed. The reason being I am not passing the object name in the method call object constructor. Now I changed

                  MethodCall mCall = new MethodCall("invokeCacheNotify", sArray, cArray);

                  as

                  MethodCall mCall = new MethodCall("RpcDispatcherClient.invokeCacheNotify", sArray, cArray);

                  This fixed the problem.

                  But Now I got another problem. The method call is happening on the local node. But on remote nodes it is not throwing an error but the method call is not executed. The response from the other nodes in the cluster is:

                  08:36:27,012 INFO [STDOUT] responses: [sender=server202:33871 (additional data: 16 bytes), retval=org.jboss.ha.framework.server.HAPartitionImpl$NoHandlerForRPC@1fb9fb3, received=true, suspected=false]
