java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException while marshalling with JAXB

We just started seeing this exception crop up in our production environment.

I've been searching and I have not been able to find a whole lot of information on this error. Can anyone shed some light as to what could be causing this and if possible any steps to correct it?

My guess: a race condition which occurs when two threads try to do marshalling at the same time.

True, the code you posted looks like it should be thread-safe. But it's possible that it's running into non-thread-safe situations deep down in the system code which you see at the top of your stack trace.

Or perhaps "JAXBContext.newInstance(CRM_TYPE)" isn't a thread-safe operation and it can return the same object to two different threads. Problems with that theory: I don't know whether that would matter, and the API documentation doesn't mention that as a problem.

Unfortunately that's just speculation, and it isn't clear what you could do to fix it, or how to test that the fix worked. Perhaps somebody else will have a more useful answer...

I concur in view of

If you are using schema compilation to establish the (pojo) object graph, you should be aware that there is a switch to make out synchronized methods, namely, adding the switch:

The effect of which is basically making all the accessors synchronized (by adding the keyword synchronized to their declaration).

In the meantime as a stop-gap measure, maybe you could try add a lock see if it could achieve the desired effect without making a full analysis?

Thank you for replying. I'll implement this and see how it does.
I agree. Here's the link:
