Subject [jira] [Updated] (LANG-753) Validate.notNull() should throw IllegalArgumentException but throws NullPointerException
Date Wed, 27 Jun 2012 14:45:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-753?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Matt Benson updated LANG-753:
-----------------------------

    Issue Type: Improvement  (was: Bug)

It's a documentation issue.  If you need an {{IllegalArgumentException}} you can use some
variant of {{Validate.isTrue(arg != null)}}.  As Erhan pointed out early on, the behavior
cannot be changed for [lang] v3.x without introducing worse BC issues than what you've experienced
upgrading from v2.x (bearing in mind that the package change was an intentional break for
just this reason).

> Validate.notNull() throws an IllegalArgumentException in commons-lang 2.6, but in 3.0.1
it throws a NullPointerException. I can't find any note about this in the release notes. I
think this is a regression, because it could break others code.
