Subject Attachments bug....
Date Thu, 30 May 2002 12:25:53 GMT


Just discovered a problem to do with attachments :

Running  Axis Beta 2  on Tomcat 3.2.1
We did not have mail.jar in the classpath.

although the Message class reported that attachments were disabled
when running with debug on, we missed it   :-)

when calling a method returning an attachment, the servlet
just gets an NPE.

this due to the return value treated as a mutli-ref not an attachment.

this works with tomcat 4.xx  as the mail.jar classes are in the path ( I
suspect )

So the bug is :

Axis beta 2 fails with an NPE when attempting to handle a Java RPC method
with a returned attachment if attachments support is switched off .
it should report the mismatch  e.g. "trying to invoke a method returning an
attachment when attachment support is disabled"  and fail gracefully.
