> The Javadoc comment below states that the method "throws NullPointerException if the
collection is null". 
>     	    /**
> 	       .....
> 	     * @param collection  the collection to add to, must not be null
> 	     * @param object  the object to add, if null it will not be added
> 	     * @return true if the collection changed
> 	     * @throws NullPointerException if the collection is null
> 	     */
> 	    public static <T> boolean addIgnoreNull(Collection<T> collection, T
object) {
> 	        return (object != null && collection.add(object));
> 	    }
> However, when called with an null collection and a null object (i.e., "addIgnoreNull((Collection)null,
null)"), the method executes normally without throwing any exception.
> Suggested Fixes:
> 1. Add code "if (collection == null) throw NullPointerException();" at the beginning
of the method body.
> or
> 2. Remove "@throws NullPointerException if the collection is null" from the Javadoc.
> or
> 3. Change "@throws NullPointerException if the collection is null" to "@throws NullPointerException
if the collection is null and the object is non-null)".
