Hi Ujwal,

I have made a small experiments and it seems that having
a default body doesn't prevent an interface method from
being called from either a JMX or a Platform proxy.

So in the light of this I'll suggest to add a default body
that throw UnsupportedOperationException to the new methods
added to the ThreadMXBean interface, and add an @implSpec
to specify that if not implemented, the method will throw
an UnsupportedOperationException.

This should guarantee better backward compatibility in case
someone has implemented the ThreadMXBean interface.

Mandy, would you agree?

best regards

verified that

MBeanServerConnection.invoke throws ReflectionException when invoked with a method that doesn't exist in remote MBean server.

UndeclaredThrowableException will be throwed when a client gets proxy of remote MBean server and calls a method that doesn't exist on remote Mbean server.

do we need to develop Automated tests for verifying above cases ?

Hi Mandy,

Adding a public method to an interface is an incompatible source change unless there is a default body. On the other hand I am not sure how MXBean proxies will work when proxying an interface containing a default body. It would be interesting to check this.

ThreadMXBean is a platform MXBean and so JDK implementation is the one implementing it. The real question here is that when MBeanServerConnection.invoke is called on this new method that does not exist in the remote MBeanServer (running on JDK 9 for example), does it get javax.management.ReflectionException? Or something else?
I believe that will be a ReflectionException:

Similarly, when the client gets a proxy of ThreadMXBean from a remote MBeanServer running on JDK 9 VM, and it calls this method, what exception does it get? We may need to update the spec to indicate this error cases if it’s not clear. The notes in ManagementFactory.newPlatformMXBeanProxy covers some cases due to the difference in the client/server are running on.
AFAIK that should be handled by the proxy code - I'd expect that you
will get an UndeclaredThrowableException wrapping the ReflectionException. http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk9/dev/jdk/file/65464a307408/src/java.management/share/classes/javax/management/MBeanServerInvocationHandler.java#l308
Thanks. That’s what I think but need assurance. We should add tests to verify.
