TimerService: Timer interval stops after retry

    Details

      Description

      We are running into a problem concerning the EJB 3.x timer service. We are noticing the timer doesn't fire timeouts anymore after an exception has occured and the retry of the current timeout isn't finished before the new timeout should occur.

      We attached two source file, which will demonstrate the problem.

      In short:
      The execute method in the attached example gets called every minute. The first time it will throw an exception to enter the retry. When entering the retry it will sleep for 90 seconds to make sure it is not finished before the next timeout occurs.

      After the retry finished, new timeouts will not occur. We would expect new timeouts after the retry finished, but this doesn't happen. Can anyone explain why?

      We run the example on:

      • JBoss 6.0
      • with JRE 1.6.0_26

      Below you will find the logging:

      15:58:46,024 INFO [timer.TimerTestBean] Finished executing TimerTestBean

      We added some more logging. As you can see, the state of the timer is RETRY_TIMEOUT until the retry succeeds. After the TimerTestBean finishes the state is changed to ACTIVE. However, no new timeouts arrive, even though nextExpiration=Tue Dec 06 17:36:00.

      Our guess is that this is a bug in jboss 6.

      Thanks in advance,

      Regards,
      Mario
