Description Sylvain Laurent 2010-11-27 16:30:59 UTC
Using servlet 3 async features, when asyncContext.complete(); is called from an async thread, the AsyncListener onComplete() method is not called though it should be.

Example Servlet :

package test;

import java.io.IOException;

import javax.servlet.AsyncContext;
import javax.servlet.AsyncEvent;
import javax.servlet.AsyncListener;
import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.annotation.WebServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

 * Servlet implementation class MyServlet
@WebServlet(value = "/MyServlet", asyncSupported = true)
public class MyServlet extends HttpServlet implements AsyncListener {
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

	protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
			HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
		final AsyncContext asyncContext = request.startAsync(request, response);

		asyncContext.start(new Runnable() {

			public void run() {
				try {
					Thread.sleep(5 * 1000);
					asyncContext.getResponse().getWriter().write("Hello world");
				} catch (Exception e) {

	public void onComplete(AsyncEvent arg0) throws IOException {
		System.out.println("onComplete " + arg0);

	public void onError(AsyncEvent arg0) throws IOException {
		System.out.println("onError " + arg0);

	public void onStartAsync(AsyncEvent arg0) throws IOException {
		System.out.println("onStartAsync " + arg0);

	public void onTimeout(AsyncEvent arg0) throws IOException {
		System.out.println("onTimeout " + arg0);

Fixed in 7.0.x and will be included in 7.0.6 onwards.
