>                 Key: COLLECTIONS-402
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COLLECTIONS-402
>             Project: Commons Collections
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Collection
>    Affects Versions: 3.2.1
>         Environment: Platform Independent 
>            Reporter: SHIN HWEI TAN
>   Original Estimate: 0.05h
>  Remaining Estimate: 0.05h

> The Javadoc comment below states that the method "throws NullPointerException if either
list is null". 
>     	     /*......
> 	     * 
> 	     * @throws NullPointerException if either list is null
> 	     */
> 	    public static List intersection(final List list1, final List list2)
> 	        ..
> 	    }
> However, when called with a null list1 and an empty list2(i.e., "intersection((List)null,
new ArrayList())"), the method executes normally without throwing any exception.
> Suggested Fixes:
> 1. Add code "if (list1 == null) throw NullPointerException();" at the beginning of the
method body.
> or
> 2. Remove "@throws NullPointerException if either list is null" from the Javadoc.
> or
> 3. Change "@throws NullPointerException if either list is null" to "@throws NullPointerException
if list2 is null or (the list2 is non-empty and the list1 is null)".
