[CDO] View update timing/concurrency [message #1790463] Mon, 11 June 2018 12:14 Go to next message

I was wondering what happens in this case:

* A class has two containment references x and y
* An object of this class is viewed by one client with a CDOView
* The object's references are both modified from another client by a CDOTransaction and a single commit.

Now let's say the viewing client exports the object to XML exactly during the update. Would it be possible that the exported file contains the changes for reference "x" but not for reference "y"?

Also, am I correct to assume that this is definitely prevented by using CDOView#syncExec?

Remote updates are incorporated into a local model by the invalidator thread of the view like so:

    synchronized (getViewMonitor())
    {
      lockView();

      try
      {
        doInvalidateSynced(invalidationData);
      }
      finally
      {
        unlockView();
      }
    }


If you don't want your model access be interrupted by the invalidator thread you should use CDOView.syncExec, which is implemented as follows:

  public void syncExec(Runnable runnable)
  {
    synchronized (getViewMonitor())
    {
      lockView();

      try
      {
        runnable.run();
      }
      finally
      {
        unlockView();
      }
    }
  }

Sounds good, thanks!
I also wrote a small test with which I could -not- generate any inconsistent state.
