      Description

      Here's another three-way deadlock that we've encountered:

      • Thread A holds a downgraded SISM write lock and is about to start delivering observation events to synchronous listeners
      • Thread B wants to write something and blocks waiting for the SISM write lock (since A holds the lock)
      • Thread C wants to read something and blocks waiting for the SISM read lock (since B waits for the lock)

      Normally such a scenario is handled without any problems, but there's a problem if the session used by thread C has a synchronous observation listener that attempts to read something from the repository during event delivery. In this case the following can happen:

      • Thread C holds the ItemManager synchronization lock higher up in the call chain
      • Observation listener code called by thread A attempts to read something from the repository, and blocks trying to acquire the ItemManager synchronization lock (since C holds it)

      In principle such a scenario should never happen as an observation listener (much less a synchronous one) should never try to use the session that might already be in use by another thread.

      Unfortunately the EntryCollector class in o.a.j.core.security.authorization.acl does not follow this guideline, which leads to the deadlock as shown below:
