           Summary: NullPointerException with cvschangelog task
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P1
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: rgeimer@ptc.com


I was running the CVS change log task on my repository, and got a rather 
uninforming NullPointerException:

I went to the ant source and added some debugging code, and was able to track 
the problem down to the following place in 
org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.cvslib.ChangeLogParser:

    private Date parseDate(final String date) {
        try {
            return c_inputDate.parse(date);
        } catch (ParseException e) {
            //final String message = REZ.getString( "changelog.bat-
date.error", date );
            //getContext().error( message );
            return null;
        }
    }

When I printed the stack trace for the ParserException, I found out it was 
complaining about the date format it encountered, which was "yyyy-MM-dd 
HH:mm:ss" instead of the "yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss" format that it was expecting. I 
fixed this by adding the following code:


    /** alternate input format for dates read in from cvs log */
    private static final SimpleDateFormat alt_c_inputDate
        = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss");

    private Date parseDate(final String date) {
        try {
            return c_inputDate.parse(date);
        } catch (ParseException e) {
            //final String message = REZ.getString( "changelog.bat-
date.error", date );
            //getContext().error( message );
            if (date != null){
            	try {
					return alt_c_inputDate.parse(date);
				} catch (ParseException e1){
					e.printStackTrace();
					return null;
				}
			}
            return null;
        }
    }
