      Description

      I have a stress test using Derby 10.3.1.4 which is executing the same PreparedStatement using multiple threads concurrently and I consistently get the following NPE after several hours of running:

      2007-12-07 00:48:10.914 GMT Thread[pool-5-thread-25,5,main] (XID = 1219661), (SESSIONID = 377), (DATABASE = /usr/ironhide/var/db/opera/derby), (DRDAID = null), Failed Statement is: select rdbmsvaria0_.GUID_AND_INDEX as GUID1_3_0_, rdbmsvaria0_.VALUE2 as VALUE2_3_0_, rdbmsvaria0_.HOLDER_GUID as HOLDER3_3_0_, rdbmsvaria0_.VALUE_TYPE as VALUE4_3_0_, rdbmsvaria0_.VALUE_GUID as VALUE5_3_0_, rdbmsvaria0_.DELETED as DELETED3_0_ from VARIABLE rdbmsvaria0_ where rdbmsvaria0_.GUID_AND_INDEX=? with 1 parameters begin parameter #1: 9C202AB9E8356288A9320C9C383A4D2F-11 :end parameter

      Cleanup action completed

      Here is the relevant code from GenericActivationHolder.java

      // synchronized (ps)
      {
      /* Has the activation class changed? */
      if (gc != ps.getActivationClass())
      {

      // ensure the statement is valid by rePreparing it.
      ps.rePrepare(getLanguageConnectionContext()); // <-- line 260

      /*

        • If we get here, it means the PreparedStatement has been
        • recompiled. Get a new Activation and check whether the
        • parameters are compatible. If so, transfer the parameters
        • from the old Activation to the new one, and make that the
        • current Activation. If not, throw an exception.
          */
          GeneratedClass newGC = ps.getActivationClass();

      BaseActivation newAC = (BaseActivation) newGC.newInstance(lcc); // <-- line 271

      DataTypeDescriptor[] newParamTypes = ps.getParameterTypes();

      As you can see, the activation class returned by the ExecPreparedStatement is null as of line 271, even after having called a rePrepare(...) on the prepared statement (line 260). This is most likely due to a race condition. Also note that the containing block was formerly synchronized, but has since been commented out. From browsing the source in previous versions, the synchronized statement appears to have been commented out since before 10.0.2.1. It appears the fix is to reintroduce the synchronized block, or at least make the block inside the if statement synchronized.
