Description Stanislav Baiduzhyi 2015-04-20 08:54:23 UTC
Refactoring of ForkJoin, introduced in 8u40, breaks the runnable submission to the thread pool.

Following code finishes immediately on 8u31 and earlier, but never stops on 8u40 and 8u45.

Reproducer code:

import java.util.concurrent.*;
import java.util.concurrent.atomic.*;

public class ForkJoinPoolThrottling {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Throwable {
        final ForkJoinPool e = new ForkJoinPool(1);
        final AtomicBoolean b = new AtomicBoolean();
        final Runnable setFalse = new Runnable() { public void run() {
        for (int i = 0; i < 100000; i++) {
            do {} while (b.get()); // spins forever here

Is this:

summary:     8056248: Improve ForkJoin thread throttling

It sounds like something that needs to be raised upstream.

Comment 3 Chris Phillips @ TO 2015-05-25 10:58:51 UTC
I think (at least for jdk8).
