Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-980) NullPointerException : BasicResolver resolveAndCheckRevision

NullPointerException : BasicResolver resolveAndCheckRevision

                 Key: IVY-980
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.0-RC2, 2.0-RC1
         Environment: Intel / Windows 2000 (Server) / Windows XP.
            Reporter: Craig paddon
             Fix For: 2.0.0-beta-2, 2.0.0-beta-1

When I switched to RC1 or RC2 I experianced the following error (which worked fine in previuos

When there is a dependancy which uses the rev="+" and there is no revision on the artifact
in the repository the resolver throws a null pointer.

I have a filesystem resolver with the following pattern:
<filesystem name="remote3rdParty" checkmodified="false" cache="systemCahce">
        <artifact pattern="\\someServer\IvyRepo\external\[organisation]\[artifact]-[revision].[ext]"/>
        <artifact pattern="\\someServer\IvyRepo\external\[organisation]\[artifact].[ext]"/>

(Some artifacts in the 3rd party library don't have versions).

The file path is:

The dependancy is:
<dependency name="SomeJar" org="acme" rev="+" conf="runtime-jar->default;"/>

>From a client point of view, the module doesn't care what version... just get the latest....
and if there is no version just get the current one.

There are a number of work arounds...

a) Ensure all JARs in the repository have a version ... Invent a version on ones which don't
have any version. (Probably a good idea anyway).
       - If this is the case then thats fine. It should just be a documented feature :)

b) Use the beta version of ivy.

c) Change the client module to specify no revision rev=""
