What modifications are in ehcache-2.10.2-atlassian-4.jar?

We are using a patched version of ehcache-2.7.5 in JIRA 7.1.9 to address https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-62717

We noticed in the 7.2.3 update that jar is replaced by an Atlassian fork. What is in this fork? Is the source code available so we can apply our patch?

The reason for the modifications and the patch that was applied to fix it are both available here:



Thanks. So would using the 2.10.3 version unmodified by Atlassian be an option?

Chris Fuller Atlassian Team Nov 16, 2016

To the best of my knowledge, yes.

That said, you should keep in mind that if Atlassian is not shipping that version yet, then we have not tested with it.  Using a version other than the one we supply may make it more difficult for the support team to help out if there are other changes included in that version that cause problems.

Thanks. We'll give it a shot.

If that doesn't work how do we see the patch from that terracotta ticket? Seems to be eluding me. Is it available in diff format somehow?

It isn't stated directly, just described.  it is replacing the final call to "getQuietly" with the block of text at the end.  The point is that this returns the loaded value directly instead of trying to retrieve it from the cache again.

Oh I see. Thanks.

I was able to hunt down the repo and extract a formal patch for you:
