Status Quo

ParameterAutowireUtils (used internally by the SpringExtension) creates a SynthesizingMethodParameter via SynthesizingMethodParameter.forParameter() which looks up the index of the current Parameter via MethodParameter.findParameterIndex(Parameter).

findParameterIndex() iterates over the array of parameters returned from java.lang.reflect.Executable.getParameters() which is unfortunately not thread-safe.

Specifically, the implementation of java.lang.reflect.Executable.privateGetParameters() writes to a private transient volatile Parameter[] parameters field in such a way that competing threads may receive references to different arrays.


  1. Ensure that parameter resolution within the SpringExtension is thread-safe.
