|Re: [jetty-users] Jetty 9.0.4 issue (also in 9.0.5-SNAPSHOT) with Spring MVC Async (test provided)|
Thanks for commenting. Isn't the spec relatively clear? In other words
that the dispatch should have no effect until the exiting thread has
I was very glad to find the qualification in the spec when I first
came across the need for it since code in the exiting thread needs to
be able to check reliably if async has started. If we can't rely on
isAsyncStarted, and for example had to implement a request attribute
solution, we'd have to also remove the attribute at some point, so
that the subsequently dispatched thread doesn't think that async has
started. There is no good place I can think of for doing that. It has
to be as late as possible in the exiting thread, i.e. after all
filters, and as early as possible in the subsequently dispatched
thread, i.e. before all filters. Also, such a request attribute would
be framework specific and would not mix well with filters from other
frameworks. This is where I see the purpose of this flag as essential.
