           Summary: EqualsBuilder.append(Object[], Object[]) crashes with a
                    NullPointerException if an element of the first array is
                    null
           Product: Commons

          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.3
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: PatchAvailable
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P1
         Component: Lang

If you use EqualsBuilder.append(Object[], Object[]), and the first array contains an element
that is null 
(and before any other mismatches between the arrays are present), then EqualsBuilder will
throw a 
NullPointerException at line 513.

Steps to reproduce:

  Object[] x1 = new Object[] { new Integer(1), null, new Integer(3) };
  Object[] x2 = new Object[] { new Integer(1), new Integer(2), new Integer(3) };

  new EqualsBuilder().append(x1, x2);

The third line of this program will crash.

Attached is a patch that fixes this bug and adds code to an existing unit-test case that proves
it's fixed 
(i.e., the test fails without the source patch, and passes with it, and is a valid test).

This patch also fixes another bug related to exact types of objects in an array (which I'm
about to enter, 
and which I will relate to this bug if I figure out how :-).
