Distributed Caching: Combination Automatic Peer Discovery (MulticastRMICacheManagerPeerProvider) and synchronously bootstrapping (RMIBootstrapCacheLoaderFactory) doesn’t work.

Within the init method of the CacheManager first the configured caches will be added by calling the addConfiguredCaches(configurationHelper) method. By processing this method the cache bootstrapping will be done. If the RMIBootstrapCacheLoaderFactory has been configured with bootstrapAsynchronously=false no peer nodes will be found.

The reason is, that the MulticastRMICacheManagerPeerProvider will be initialized after processing the addConfiguredCaches(configurationHelper) method. Therefore no heartbeat messages will be received before this point.

CacheManager private void init(…) { …

    status = Status.STATUS_ALIVE;
    if (cacheManagerPeerListener != null) {
    if (cacheManagerPeerProvider != null) {

This was fixed by changing the CacheManager to fully initialise before adding caches. A new test, testBootstrapFromClusterWithSyncLoader has been added to RMIBootstrapCacheLoaderTest.

Thanks for reporting the bug. The fix is in trunk and will be in 1.3 which will be out in beta shortly.
