the two constructors serve two different purposes:
* the default contructor is used by the sitemap to assemble pipelines in 
the way described by the sitemap definition (so that one being called is 
expected in your case)
* the constructor with the source parameter is intended for the 
programmatic use (pure convenience)

Looking at the code in the StringTemplateGenerator suggests that the 
source you're passing "testcases/{map:name}.st" cannot be resolved for 
the "name" you are using, thus resolving in the URL being null and 
causing a NPE.

URL resolution in your case (using a sitemap) is performed by the 
GenerateNode, which delegates back to the Invocation(Impl).
No logging in that area *sigh* so you will either need to double check 
your "name" parameter and resources and/or go debugging...

The sitemap fragment you posted is perfectly fine BTW.
