Subject [jira] Created: (CXF-1689) CXF assumes class.getPackage() is never null

CXF assumes class.getPackage() is never null

                 Key: CXF-1689
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.1.1
            Reporter: Hani Suleiman
             Fix For: 2.1.2, 2.0.8

One example, JAXBExtensionHelper has this line:


According to the javadocs of Class.getPackage, a classloader may return null if it has not
defined a package for the class. Specifying a package is optional, so the class needs to handle
getPackage() returning null.

Note that some CXF developers seem to understand this restriction, and so parts of the codebase
perform the correct null check for getPackage(), but others seem unaware of it, and so do
not check for null. The right solution is to go through every call to getPackage() and add
a null check.

If needed (and if it'd speed up the fixing), I can supply a patch to apply to fix all occurrences
of this issue.
