Doc Text:
Incorrectly disposing of the knowledge agent when shutting down the server caused an exception to be logged. There was no impact to the application, however, the exception could cause confusion. To resolve this issue, a listener definition was added to the business central server war, ensuring the correct disposal of the knowledge agent. The exception no longer occurs.

server log

When stopping EAP 6.0 with deployed BRMS 5.3.0, an exception is thrown. See attached server log.
Comment 2 Geoffrey De Smet 2012-08-24 06:58:06 EDT
RuleBaseEventSupport does "new BeforeRuleBaseLockedEvent()"
Both are in the same jar (drools-core) and in the same package (org.drools.event). The ClassNotFoundException does not make sense.
Comment 3 Geoffrey De Smet 2012-08-24 09:49:02 EDT
Can not reproduce.

I tried guvnor-5.3.4-SNAPSHOT-jboss-as-7.0.War on jboss-eap-6.0, but the server shutdown went fine:

The stacktrace seems to implicate there's a changeset involved too. Furthermore, it happens for "business-central-server.war", what is that war?
Please provide a reproduce recipe. Even better would be a reproducing arquillian test.
Comment 4 Geoffrey De Smet 2012-08-24 10:29:47 EDT
Once we can reproduce, we need too look into this jbpm class:


Several problems:
1) That's a class never calls
2) That class overwrite Object.finalize() (= evil). But that is never called as no instance is ever created of that class (all use is static).
3) Therefore, StatefulKnowledgeSessionUtil.dispose() is never called.
Comment 5 Geoffrey De Smet 2012-08-27 09:33:45 EDT
This pull request has changes that might fix the problem (as kagent.dispose() should be correctly be called):

However, after building the jbpm-console from source (with or without these changes), I was unable to deploy that to EAP 6 or JBoss AS 7, due to the high reconfiguration required to the server.
The installer and the wiki doc didn't help.
Comment 6 Geoffrey De Smet 2012-08-27 10:00:06 EDT
Macies (a jbpm developer) is able to run the jbpm-console locally, he's going to try the changes.
Comment 7 Geoffrey De Smet 2012-08-27 10:20:36 EDT
Marco will take over the rest of the issue.
Comment 9 Jiri Svitak 2012-08-29 10:30:54 EDT
Sometimes I experience also this exception when stopping EAP 6.0 (usually after several other exceptions regarding persistence configuration or something else):

Comment 10 Maciej Swiderski 2012-08-30 10:48:09 EDT
confirm that Geoffrey change solved the problem and merged it into 5.2.x and master.
Thanks Geoffrey!

Important to note that console-server/business-central-server web.xml needs to be altered to include following listener definition:
Comment 11 Jiri Svitak 2012-09-13 11:12:38 EDT
I have stopped the eap6 with the new ee6 deployable wars several times and the reported exception "Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.drools.event.BeforeRuleBaseLockedEvent" has never been thrown again.

Regarding Maciej's comment #10 - my business-central-server web.xml does not contain the described listener definition and it was not necessary to add it there.

So, I am changing the state to VERIFIED in brms 5.3.1 ER1.
Comment 13 lcarlon 2012-10-22 00:22:28 EDT
Doc text edited for inclusion in the release notes. Thanks for providing the text, Maciej.
