"IOException: Stream closed" error when running 2 Git commands in parallel

I develop an add-on for Bitbucket Server and for our purposes I want to run

{code}
  git fast-export | git fast-import
{code}

commands connected with a pipe.

 

For these purposes I use GitCommandBuilderFactory, start 'git fast-export' command asynchronously, get the output from it. Then asynchronously start 'git fast-import' and feed the output of the first command as the input of the second one.

But once the second command starts, the output of the first command gets closed and only contains buffered data.

{code}
Caused by: java.io.IOException: Stream closed
        at java.io.BufferedInputStream.getBufIfOpen(BufferedInputStream.java:170)
        at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read(BufferedInputStream.java:336)
        at java.io.FilterInputStream.read(FilterInputStream.java:133)

        ... 12 common frames omitted
{code}
Note that this buffering feature could be the reason why the problem can be unnoticed if the command output is not as big.

 

I conducted experiments with inserting sleep() and just reading the output of the first command without starting the second one. Everything works fine unless and until the second command is started. So it's not a problem of idleness or timeouts. The second command is the only cause of the problem.

 

There's also a similar issue: BSERV-11330 it has absolutely the same stack trace and the same symptoms (several Git processes running simultaneously). The issue is closed as fixed at some versions including 5.16.0, but the issue I'm reporting is reproducible with 5.16.1 as well. So probably 5.16.1 was maybe fixed by avoiding running parallel processes rather than by making them work properly.

 

I wonder: are 2 or more Git processes supposed to work in parallel at all? Or are they executed one after another by design and is the behaviour I see really expected?

 

If yes I would be great if you could fix the issue before releasing 6.0 version because otherwise it would break our add-on: the old API is not available and we can't use the new one because of this bug.

 

I'm including a class that can be used to reproduce the problem (construct the object a call run() from it).
