Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-1116) NullPointerException not advertized in Javadoc
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2014 06:50:15 GMT


Cyrille Artho commented on MATH-1116:

Thanks. I've added another attachment that shows two more similar cases, after removing deprecated
classes and trying to simplify the tests. The attachment appears above,
along with the one-liner for the shorter of the two tests.

> The following statement produces a NullPointerException:
> new org.apache.commons.math3.optim.nonlinear.vector.jacobian.LevenbergMarquardtOptimizer().getWeight();
> The documentation does not seem to indicate that other data must be set before getWeight
is used (at least I could not find that information). In this case, weightMatrix is still
null because it has not been initialized.
> This call should probably throw an IllegalStateException, which makes it clear that this
API usage is incorrect.
> This test uses LevenbergMarquardtOptimizer but any instantiable subclass of MultivariateVectorOptimizer
probably works the same way.
