Compression issue with PHP client (TcpTransceiver.cpp:158: ConnectionLostException)

Hello,

I suppose there is a bug in php client resulting in message:
Uncaught Ice_UnknownLocalException TcpTransceiver.cpp:158: Ice::ConnectionLostException: connection lost: recv() returned zero
on php side.

Investigation reveals that php client sometimes (it is very indeterministic) does not respect compression flag sent by server on validation message. There is a trace from one conversation that shows this:

PHP side:
[ 08/18/08 08:34:03.518 Protocol: received validate connection
  message type = 3 (validate connection)
  compression status = 0 (not compressed; do not compress response, if any)
  message size = 14 ]
[ 08/18/08 08:34:03.518 Protocol: sending request
  message type = 0 (request)
  compression status = 2 (compressed; compress response, if any)
  message size = 115
  request id = 1
  identity = SessionFactory/sessionFactory
  facet =
  operation = ice_isA
  mode = 1 (nonmutating)
  context =  ]
[ 08/18/08 08:34:03.521 Protocol: received validate connection
  message type = 3 (validate connection)
  compression status = 0 (not compressed; do not compress response, if any)
  message size = 14 ]
[ 08/18/08 08:34:03.522 Protocol: sending request
  message type = 0 (request)
  compression status = 2 (compressed; compress response, if any)
  message size = 115
  request id = 1
  identity = SessionFactory/sessionFactory
  facet =
  operation = ice_isA
  mode = 1 (nonmutating)
  context =  ]

Server side (Java):
[ 18.08.08 08:31:59:349 Protocol: sending validate connection 
  message type = 3 (validate connection)
  compression status = 0 (not compressed; do not compress response, if any)
  message size = 14 ]
[ 18.08.08 08:31:59:349 Protocol: sending validate connection 
  message type = 3 (validate connection)
  compression status = 0 (not compressed; do not compress response, if any)
  message size = 14 ]

In general, I can say that situation when validation message is sent twice is very often, but everything ends fine because php side turns off compression after second 'validation message'. Anyway there are cases when it does not.

To make situation clear, this happens when server (Java in our case) has no access to the apache bzip classes. By the way, it is very tricky that (for Java) ant.jar must be included in the classpath to make compression work. Couldn't commons-compress be used for example?

Ice version: 3.3.0
PHP version 5.2.6

    Hi,

    It's unfortunately a bug in Ice for C++. I've posted a patch here that fixes this issue. Thanks for the bug report.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.
