I've some more very minor issues to add to the new patch if you agree:
service thread is started by:
timer.scheduleAtFixedRate( task, period, period );
I would think the first operation should start immediately, not
If you look at the code, the first operation is done synchronously in
start() we can't strat HSearch until we have a working Directory ready.
Also I would use schedule( task, long, long) instead of
the "atFixedRate" version means it will begin sooner if it started
we don't require this (correct?).
So I propose:
timer.schedule( task, 0, period );
Well I kinda like scheduleAtFixedRate for the copy tasks, it sounds
more admin friendly to me. Why do you like schedule better?
Also the timer creates another thread, running concurrently to itself
and skipping task if the previous is still working.
What would I miss if I just let the Timer do the job, without needing
the Executor around? (one less thread and less code to check
current activity as the timer supports that check for us).
In the current scheme, the copy is run every n minutes unless the
previous tasks takes more than n minutes. In the latter, the task is
If you don't, then the tasks will pile up and the copy will run over
and over (while the tasks try to catch up)
Using the executor it would be nice to share the same
executor among several Directory Providers, to have better
resource bounds (serialize the copy for different instances
of FSSlave/Master Providers).
Would a static Executor instance be ugly?
Yes it would be ugly and would probably complicate hot redeployment.
What would be the benefit really? I don't like very much the idea of
one copy blocking all other copies. Plus there are some deadlocks
issues between directories that HSearch deal with internally that
might interfere as well if you share the same resource pool.
Threads are cheap.
