> The API has public default constructors for many data types. However, when these 0-argument
constructors are used, certain internal references are null, resulting in a NullPointerException
soon after.
> This also applies to some 1-argument constructors where two references should be set
before get... is used later.
> Either (1) these constructors should be non-public, (2) there should be documentation
that certain fields need to be set later for an instance to be usable. In the latter case,
there must be public set methods for the missing data.
> The attachment contains a number of similar test cases that show the same issue in a
couple of classes.
> An example:
>     org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.zip.UnicodeCommentExtraField var0 = new org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.zip.UnicodeCommentExtraField();
>     org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.zip.ZipShort var1 = var0.getLocalFileDataLength();
