Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-429) NullPointerException (NPE) in FastDateFormat.getInstance(
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2008 13:05:21 GMT
NullPointerException (NPE) in FastDateFormat.getInstance(

                 Key: LANG-429
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Bug
    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


        at org.apache.commons.lang.time.FastDateFormat.getInstance(
        at org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateFormatUtils.format(
        at org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateFormatUtils.format(

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?
