Implement a session:first-client-principal attribute

  • Under Review

We have a process in place to check for memory leaks on a Progress Application Server. The primarily uses the code from article: https://knowledgebase.progress.com/articles/Article/P124514

However in recent testing we found a memory leak on an application server agent and all the objects in the session handle looked fine. After investigating with DynObjects we found the memory leak was a leaking CLIENT-PRINCIPAL object.

Current there is no way to detect this leak other than DynObjects. A Progress support case was created with the solution as follows:

"I checked with development on this before I submitted the bug.  They came back and said that session:first-object is only for objects that inherit from Progress.Lang.Object so client-principal would not apply.  They would like you to submit an enhancement request asking that they implement a session:first-client-principal attribute instead."

Comments
  • A more general SESSION:FIRST-HANDLE would be a broader mechanism - you could see C-P objects as well as any other handle-based objects in a session. You can always check the TYPE attribute for the type.
