Bug in Cache-Konfiguration


i found two bugs in the implementation of Openfire’s cache config:

on line:

The PropertyEventListener checks for “.maxLifeTime” instead of “.maxLifetime”. Thats why lifetime settings will take effect only on restart.

on line:

the cache interface says: getMaxCacheSize() returns long

on line:

the cache interface says that the same value is set as int

Also the documentation of the setMaxCacheSize says (https://github.com/igniterealtime/Openfire/blob/master/xmppserver/src/main/java/org/jivesoftware/util/cache/Cache.java#L77) that the value is in bytes

in the hazelcast plugin the value is used as megabyte (https://docs.hazelcast.org/docs/3.12/javadoc/ -> USED_HEAP_SIZE)

That means that in non cluster environments the cache is in bytes and in cluster environments (with hazelcast) it is in megabytes.

my recommended solution would be that setMaxCacheSize should use long and in hazelcast plugin the value of byte should be converted to megabye.

I can create a pull-request for it

Best Regards

Thanks for reporting this! The fix related to the typo / different usage of camel-case will be fixed in Openfire 4.4.3.

The bug where an inconsistent data type is used to represent cache sizes will be fixed in Openfire 4.5.0.
