Description Konstantin Kolinko 2015-03-10 14:54:40 UTC
I mentioned this issue in "Time for 7.0.60" thread on dev@.

It is a bug with error handling in example webapp. It is not a regression from recent changes. It is reproducible with 7.0.59.

Steps to reproduce:
Using Tomcat 7.0.59, JDK 6u45.

1. Start Tomcat

2. Visit stockicker example,

3. Abort the request while the page is being loaded (Press "Esc" key on keyboard)

4. Re-visit the example

Expected: Working stockicker example.

1) Browser waits for a response. After several seconds the progress indicator stops. A blank page is displayed.

2) Access log shows response status 200, but byte counter is zero ("-"). - - [10/Mar/2015:17:45:31 +0300] "GET /examples/async/stockticker HTTP/1.1" 200 -

3) Looking into catalina.2015-03-10.log, there is the following exception:
10.03.2015 17:36:58 org.apache.coyote.AbstractProcessor setErrorState
INFO: An error occurred in processing while on a non-container thread. The connection will be closed immediately
java.net.SocketException: Software caused connection abort: socket write error

	at async.AsyncStockServlet.tick(AsyncStockServlet.java:81)
	at async.Stockticker.run(Stockticker.java:84)
	at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:662)

4) Looking at console,
There is the same exception as in "3)",
followed by the following exception:
java.lang.IllegalStateException: The request associated with the AsyncContext has already completed processing.
        at org.apache.catalina.core.AsyncContextImpl.check(AsyncContextImpl.java
        at org.apache.catalina.core.AsyncContextImpl.getResponse(AsyncContextImp
        at async.AsyncStockServlet.writeStock(AsyncStockServlet.java:86)
        at async.AsyncStockServlet.tick(AsyncStockServlet.java:81)
        at async.Stockticker.run(Stockticker.java:84)
        at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:662)

Essentially, the async.Stockticker thread crashed due to a non handled ISE. This explains the behaviour.

5) The exception in "4)" is logged to the console only. It is not logged into Tomcat log files.

Fixed in trunk 8.0.x (for 8.0.21 onwards) and 7.0.x (for 7.0.60 onwards).
