Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-429) NullPointerException (NPE) in FastDateFormat.getInstance(FastDateFormat.java:211)
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2008 13:35:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-429?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12592053#action_12592053
] 

Sebb commented on LANG-429:
---------------------------

I think it's possible because the cInstanceCache field is not final - see LANG-367.

Updating to version 2.4 should fix the problem.

>    Affects Versions: 2.2
>         Environment: MS Windows XP (SP 2), Java 1.5.0 Update 11
>            Reporter: Kai Burjack

> Sometimes (sadly this is not reproducible) the following method call results in a NullPointerException
(NPE):
> Stacktrace:
> java.lang.NullPointerException
>         at org.apache.commons.lang.time.FastDateFormat.getInstance(FastDateFormat.java:211)
>         at org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateFormatUtils.format(DateFormatUtils.java:258)
>         at org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateFormatUtils.format(DateFormatUtils.java:232)
> I don't know how this is actually possible, since the exception is being raised when
accessing a static field 'cInstanceCache' that will be implicitly initialized...
> Could this have something to do with class gc?
