Coding error in StreamGenerator.generate()

           Summary: Coding error in StreamGenerator.generate()
           Product: Cocoon 2
           Version: 2.0.1
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://integerservices.no-ip.com/servlet/ProcessDoc
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: cocoon-dev@xml.apache.org
        ReportedBy: john@integerservices.no-ip.com


Line 85 in org.apache.cocoon.eneration.Streamgenerator.generate() does not 
allow for a missing Content-type: http header. This throws a 
NullPointerException which is logged as "Could not get parser" at line 121 
where the exception is caught.

I found this out when I was testing a servlet of mine. The servlet normally 
sends an xml file to a pipeline that begins (like request1 in the distributed 
sitemap) with a StreamGenerator. I wasn't using the servlet, but entered the 
URL of this pipeline into IE 5.5 (which did not POST the form with the 
requisite MIME header.

So, I wound up throwing a NullPointerException at the point in the code that 
StreamGenerator does not check for this malformation in the requqest.

Great product. Thanks a bunch. I can work past this, but this item will cost 
people time in future, so it needs to be fixed.
