Description cf126330 2013-03-15 03:28:18 UTC
Should have some javadoc in JobOperator to cover concurrency and thread-safety aspect.

For example, is it supported if multiple client threads access the same JobOperator instance, starting/stopping/restarting the same or different job?

For what it's worth we're not doing a whole lot in the RI.. even in the Glassfish environment where we've introduced a purge.

The burden of consistency and synchronization is on the end user / batch admin... though we took another pass fixing our RI tables and at least have some DB-level consistency.

We won't have time to code anything else here.. so probably you'll have to use loose language (i.e. up to implementation) here.

I need to think this one over a little more.

Not committing to address in future, just listing as candidates and pointing out they're excluded from current Maintenance Rel.
