Created attachment 35393 [details]

Smoke-testing release candidate of Tomcat 7.0.82.

Java 8u144, Windows, running with APR connector

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start Tomcat
2. Access
3. Actual result:
- At client: the page fails to complete loading. It displays some parts of the page, but no drawboard area.
- At server: java.security.AccessControlException is logged

SEVERE: Unexpected exception: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission" "accessClassInPackage.org.apache.tomcat.jni")
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission" "accessClassInPackage.org.apache.tomcat.jni")

Comment 1 Konstantin Kolinko 2017-10-03 11:51:06 UTC
AprServletOutputStream.java:135 is

  if (Status.APR_STATUS_IS_EAGAIN(-written)) {

APR_STATUS_IS_EAGAIN is a method, not a constant, and thus Java tries to load the class.

If I preload the Status class the issue does not happen.

This is: to work-around this issue, add the following attribute to JreMemoryLeakPreventionListener configured in conf/server.xml:

Fixed in 7.0.x for 7.0.83 onwards.
