Subject [jira] [Created] (MATH-861) Make sure that entries of FieldVectors cannot be null
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 06:55:10 GMT
Sébastien Brisard created MATH-861:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Make sure that entries of FieldVectors cannot be null
                 Key: MATH-861
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-861
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Sébastien Brisard
             Fix For: 3.2


As part of MATH-854, an extensive review of exceptions possibly thrown throughout CM is being
carried out.

It turns out that in {{FieldVector}}, {{NullArgumentException}}s may occur because {{FieldElement}}
throws such an exception for all elementary operation. In {{FieldVector}}, this has an impact
on
* operations involving a {{FieldElement}} as an argument, eg {{mapAdd(T d)}} and the likes:
for these method, the throws clause has been altered.
* operations involving a {{FieldVector}} as an argument, eg {{add(FieldVector<T> v}}.
In order to avoid catching and rethrowing a {{NullArgumentException}}, all implementations
of {{FieldVector}} should make sure that no vector entry can be {{null}}.

As a consequence
* the above statement must be added to the class comment of {{FieldVector}}
* all constructors, setters and the likes must explicitely check for {{null}}
