Hi David,

Thanks again.  I included Sergeui's suggestions before pushing the fix.

I also created an enhancement bug to improve the test: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8166453

No further comments - the suggestions from Sergeui seem reasonable.

I'll answer this here to save scrolling :)

It hadn't occurred to me that reflective lookup of the method would fail before we even get to the invocation part of the test. To me this further demonstrates the confusing way this test has been written because we don't actually test the invocation mechanism in those cases! This means some things that should be tested are not. For example:

 244         // "staticMethodA" must not be inherited by InterfaceB
245 testInvokeNeg(ifaceClass, null, "staticMethodA", "()I", vm().mirrorOf(RESULT_A),
 246                 "Static interface methods are not inheritable");

fails because method lookup in InterfaceB fails, but what we should also be testing is the actual InterfaceType.invokeMethod on InterfaceB using the Method for staticMethodA obtained from InterfaceA. So this suite of tests in incomplete.

It is also unclear to me if some things that should be checked at the JDWP level are in fact caught at the JDI level - a lot of argument checking/validation occurs in the JDI Java code. You might have written your fix in the Java code, but that would not have fixed JDWP. So it makes me wonder if other things are checked at the JDI level instead of the JDWP level!

Aside: The test also seems to be missing half the invocation tests because for each call that ends up doing a virtual/non-virtual invoke, there should a corresponding non-virtual/virtual invoke.

Simpler to just say:

Took me a while to notice that interfaces don't inherit static methods
from superinterfaces either!



The new comments are very verbose compared to other negative tests:

 200         // try to invoke static method A on the instance. This
should fail because ref
 201         // is of type InterfacemethodsTest$TargetClass which is
not a subtype of the
 202         // class containing staticMethodA.

Could simply be:

200 // "staticMethodA" is not inherited by TargetClass

That aside the more I look at this test the more things I see that
seem to be wrong or at the very least confused, in the existing code.
First it seems that the test chooses to ignore the "class" object when
given a non-null ref object - so it talks about invoking a static
method on an instance, which is misleading at best as what it will
actually do is take a path that tries to invoke the static method
using the instances' class instead of the specified class (which may
be the interface class). This makes the test descriptions and expected
behaviours somewhat unintuitive in my opinion.

 244         // "staticMethodA" must not be inherited by InterfaceB
 245         testInvokeNeg(ifaceClass, null, "staticMethodA", "()I",
 246                 "Static interface methods are not inheritable");

I am wondering how this test passes without your fix? It suggests
there must already exist some code that compares the declaring class
with the passed in class. ??
This test passes without my fix because the ifaceClass passed to
testInvokeNeg() is InterfaceB, which does not contain a method called
staticMethodA.  So, this code in the test's invoke() method throws an
exception because getMethod() returns null:
        Method method = getMethod(targetClass, methodName, methodSig);
        if (method == null) {
            throw new Exception("Can't find method: " + methodName  + "
for class = " + targetClass);

The code containing my fix does not get reached in this test case.  In
contrast, the test cases that originally failed with my fix passed a
correct ifaceClass but an incorrect ObjectReference.

248         // however it is possible to call "staticMethodA" on the
actual instance
 249         testInvokeNeg(ifaceClass, ref, "staticMethodA", "()I",
 250                 "Static interface methods are not inheritable");

The comment here suggests a successful execution when in fact it
expects it to fail. It should say "nor is it possible ...". But again,
how does this pass (by failing) without your fix ???
The comment here is obviously wrong.  The test passes (by failing)
without my fix for the same reason as above.  I fixed the comment.

252         // "staticMethodB" is overridden in InterfaceB

"overridden" is the wrong word here. Static interface methods are not
inherited so they can not be overridden. "re-defined" would be an
accurate description.


 255         // the instance invokes the overriden form of
"staticMethodB" from InterfaceB

overridden -> re-defined
Will fix.

298         /* Static method calls */

This starts all the static method calls on the instance class - all of
which are expected to fail, and do so _without_ your fix present! How?
These pass (by failing) for the same reasons as the above tests.  Method
invoke()'s call to getMethod() returns null.  So, invoke() throws an

It provides a more efficient implementation and fixes a test problem.
This fix was tested as described below and with the JTReg JDK
com/sun/jdi tests.

I was wondering a similar thing. It seems very heavyweight to use
Java level reflection from inside native code to validate the native "handles" passed to that native code. I would have expected a way to
go from a MethodId to the declaring class of the method, and a
simple way to test if there is an ancestor relation between the two

this change in the first place...

Regardless, I'm withdrawing this change because I found that it
a com/sun/jdi JTreg test involving static methods in interfaces.

I find it both intriguing and worrying that ClassType.InvokeMethod
refers to superinterfaces when prior to 8 (and this spec was not
updated in this area) static interface methods did not exist! The
main changes were in the definition of InterfaceType.InvokeMethod. I
wonder whether invocation of static interface methods via
ClassType.InvokeMethod is actually tested directly?

I realize the specs are a bit of a minefield when it comes to what
is required by the different specs and what is implemented in
hotspot. Unfortunately it is a minefield I also have to wade through
for private interface methods. In many cases it is not clear what
should happen and all we have to guide us is what hotspot does (eg
"virtual" invocations on non-virtual methods).

(Adding hotspot-runtime)

Hi Dan,

Thanks for looking at this.

I could pass NULL instead of clazz to ToReflectMethod() to ensure
that the method object isn't being obtained from clazz.

I don't think that would be a JNI spec compliant use of the
JNI ToReflectedMethod() function. That would be relying on
the fact that HotSpot doesn't use the clazz parameter to
convert {clazz,jmethodID} => method_object.

Sorry... again...

Please review this small fix for JDK-8160987.  The JDWP
InvokeStatic() method was depending on the JNI function that it
called to enforce the requirement that the specified method
be a member of the specified class or one of its super classes.
But, JNI does not enforce this requirement. This fix adds
code to
JDWP to do its own check that the specified method is a

the specified class or one of its super classes.

JBS Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8160987

Open webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~hseigel/bug_8160987/

    Sorry I didn't think of this comment during the

    The only "strange" part of this fix is:

    L374:     /* Get the method object from the method's
jmethodID. */
    L375:     method_object =
    L376: clazz,
    L377: method,
    L378: JNI_TRUE /* isStatic */);
    L379:     if (method_object == NULL) {
    L380:         return JVMTI_ERROR_NONE; /* Bad jmethodID ?
will be handled elsewhere */
    L381:     }

    Here we are using parameter 'clazz' to find the
method_object for
    parameter 'method' so that we can validate that 'clazz'
refers to
    method's class or superclass.

    When a bogus 'clazz' value is passed in by a JCK test, the
reason that JNI ToReflectedMethod() can still find the right
    method_object is that our (HotSpot) implementation of JNI
    ToReflectedMethod() doesn't really require the 'clazz'
    to find the right method_object. So the 'method_object'
that we
    return is the real one which has a 'clazz' field that
    match the 'clazz' parameter.

    Wow does that twist your head around or what?

    So we're trusting JNI ToReflectedMethod() to return the
    method_object when we give it a potentially bad 'clazz'

    So should we use JNI FromReflectedMethod() to convert the
    method_object back into a jmethodID and verify that
    matches the one that we passed to check_methodClass()?

I might be too paranoid here so feel free to say that enough is
enough with this fix.

Thumbs up!


The fix was tested with the two failing JCK vm/jdwp tests
in the bug, the JCK Lang, VM, and API tests, the hotspot JTReg
tests, the java/lang, java/util and other JTReg tests, the
co-located and non-colocated NSK tests, and with the RBT Tier2
