Subject [jira] Commented: (COCOON-1772) [PATCH] AuthenticationContext: NullPointerException
Date Fri, 21 Apr 2006 11:53:06 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COCOON-1772?page=comments#action_12375540 ] 

Carsten Ziegeler commented on COCOON-1772:
------------------------------------------

I think the code is correct (more or less - it would be better to throw a different exception
as an NPE of course): Could it be, that you are storing the authentication context between
requests and are accessing the context in a sub sequent request?
You should request a new authentication context within each request (this might not be documented
though...) and only use this instance during this request.
Another possibility for this NPE might be that you are not authenticated for the current request,
which means that the auth-protect action has not been invoked.

> We got a NullPointerException on AuthenticationContext.
> Apparently, this.getState() is returning null.
> We did not investigate it any further, and supposed that a null RequestState means a
null applicationName, which is reasonable as we have no "application" configured.
> Patched, and it works perfectly here.
