Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-1714) Null Pointer Exception when outputting a TableRow with a Null value for a key
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2017 09:45:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BEAM-1714?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15964088#comment-15964088
] 

Tobias Feldhaus commented on BEAM-1714:
---------------------------------------

So my toTableRow() became this after switching to Beam and I am trying to make it look shorter
and cleaner:
{code}
  public TableRow toTableRow() {
      TableRow tableRow = new TableRow();

      if (ts != null){
          tableRow.set("ts", ts.getMillis()/1000);
      }
      if (timestamp != null){
          tableRow.set("timestamp", timestamp);
      }
      if (requestId != null){
          tableRow.set("request_id", requestId);
      }
      ....
}
{code}

> When outputting a TableRow that has a Null value for a key, a Null Pointer Exception
is thrown. In the Dataflow SDK (1.9) this case is handled by outputting NULL for that field.
> I would expect the same behavior from the Beam SDK - since otherwise there is always
a lot of Null checking necessary in the user code. (Especially when there are nested fields.)
