This is just a small improvement in Lucene/Solr master (Java 11) to detect exit of JVM in our test framework. There are other places in Lucene that use ineffective ways to inspect the stack trace.
This one optimizes the implementation of TestSecurityManager#checkExit(status) to disallow all JVM exits outside of the official test runner by using StackWalker. In addition this needs no additional permissions, because we do not instruct StackWalker to fetch all crazy stuff like Class instances of stack elements.
The way how this works is: Walk through stack trace:
- skip all internal frames (those which come before the actual exit call)
- skip all frmes with the actual exit call
- limit to one more frame (the method calling System.exit())
- check if that remaining frame is on our whitelist
This can only be commited to master (9.0), as it requires Java 9.
