actionpack: Use an infinite sized queue in testing ActionController::Live #41609

merged 1 commit into from Jun 23, 2021

@dylanahsmith dylanahsmith commented Mar 3, 2021

Fixes #31813

Problem Summary

ActionController::Live normally processes the request in another thread, however, a monkey patch in [ActionController::Live monkey patch in action_controller/test_case.rb] forces it to instead get processed in the same thread. Since the writes go to a in ActionController::Live::Buffer, a test will deadlock if the controller makes more than 10 writes.


The fix is similar to #31938, we use an infinitely sized for testing. This PR just does this more cleanly by using an attribute on the class to configure the queue size, which allows both the test and normal behaviour to be tested cleanly.

@dylanahsmith This LGTM, can you rebase the CHANGELOG?

@dylanahsmith dylanahsmith force-pushed the fix-live-stream-test branch from a5a29e4 to 93e0421 Jun 2, 2021

To avoid a deadlock from the buffer filling up during testing due to the
ActionController::Live test monkey patch that processes the request in
the same thread, which means there is no consumer of the queue until
the request is processed.
