Server hangs at startup when corrupted jar is in the local extension repository


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open

      I reproduced this issue on a 8.4.5, on an ubuntu (and a debian) with tomcat8 and, in one case oracle java 8 in the other case openjdk java 8.

      It should reproduce using the following steps:

      • install CKEditor extension version 1.25 on the wiki
      • in the extension/repository folder, in the corresponding subfolders, replace one of the webjar or plugin of ckeditor jars with the one attached to this issue, without any other change
      • restart the server

      Actual result:

      • wiki "starts" but trying to access the wiki from the browser results in infinite loading (followed by a timeout if there is an apache in front or some other server that would display timeouts)
      • the container displays in the console: "deploying application /xwiki" and doesn't display "done deploying wiki" (actually sometimes it does display, sometimes it doesn't)
      • nothing else happens, no logs are displayed

      Possible expected results:

      • server starts and wiki is accessible from browser but the extensions with invalid jars are not loaded
      • server starts and wiki is accessible from browser and logs an error in the logs about the invalid extension
