TableView SelectionModel selected items listener can cause an infinite loop.




      We have many ListSelectionListeners that do not inspect the passed Change parameter since we are simply always responding to any change the same way. Attempting to avoid premature optimization...

      With a very recently built jfxrt.jar I am noticing an infinite loop in a ListSelectionListener on my TableView's SelectionModel's selected items list.

      To reproduce run the following test class:

      1. Change selection and notice that the selected item is printed to the console from the listener.

      2. Hold down shift and click with the mouse to select a different row. The app will become unresponsive and the console should show an infinite loop of changes being printed.

      As you can see the only difference is whether Change.next() is called inside the listener notification. If I had to guess it looks like this might have been caused by the fixes for RT-37395.
