validate the Open frame having been received before other frames



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: proton-0.12.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: proton-c, proton-j
    • Labels:


      I recently saw an odd test failure while making changes to some other code (itself using proton-j) that the test was using, even though it seemed like the change should have had no effect on that test. I eventually identified this was due to some unexpected behaviour in other areas that was ultimately occuring because no Open frame had been sent/received, as the original author of the test had not opened the 'client' Connection object. The test should thus never have worked as a result, but it did.

      After some further inspection, it seems that:

      • proton-j can receive and process other frames without the Open arriving, resulting in different 'default' behaviour than if it were.
      • It isnt immediately obvious (to me) whether proton-c guards against the receiving case or not.

      EDIT: the work on proton-j based on the following comments was split out to PROTON-1000:

      • proton-j can emit other frames without first sending the Open frame [because the Connection object wasnt actually opened].
      • proton-c does not appear to, since it guards in various using a check if the open has been sent yet.
