DDSJAVA — Unclear blocking behavior for WaitSet.waitForConditions overloads that don¬ít specify timeout

  • Key: DDSJAVA-9

    RTI (Rick Warren, rick.warren@rti.com)

    Summary:

    The method WaitSet.waitForConditions is provided with several overloads, including some that do not take an explicit timeout. These are intended to wait indefinitely. However, they still throw TimeoutException. How can they time out if they wait forever?

    Discussion:

    Object.wait allows indefinite waiting, so it makes sense for this specification to allow it as well. However, these overloads should not ever throw TimeoutException.

    Proposed Resolution:

    Remove the clause “throws TimeoutException” from these method declarations.
