Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-5822) NullPointerException in PropertiesLoaderUtils
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2014 13:38:25 GMT
Christoph Eßer created CXF-5822:

             Summary: NullPointerException in PropertiesLoaderUtils
                 Key: CXF-5822
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.6.14
            Reporter: Christoph Eßer
            Priority: Critical

Under some circumstances in our project {{Thread.currentThread().getContextClasssLoader()}}
is {{null}}. This leads to a {{NullPointerException}} when org.apache.cxf.common.util.PropertiesLoaderUtils.loadAllProperties()
is called with that as an argument.

This is the specific part of the code that contains the problem:

     * Load all properties from the given class path resource, using the given
     * class loader.
     * <p>
     * Merges properties if more than one resource of the same name found in the
     * class path.
     * @param resourceName the name of the class path resource
     * @param classLoader the ClassLoader to use for loading (or
     *            <code>null</code> to use the default class loader)
     * @return the populated Properties instance
     * @throws IOException if loading failed
    public static Properties loadAllProperties(String resourceName, ClassLoader classLoader)
        throws IOException {
        return loadAllProperties(resourceName, classLoader, null, null, null);
    public static Properties loadAllProperties(String resourceName, ClassLoader classLoader,
                                               Logger logger, Level level, String msg)
        throws IOException {
        Properties properties = new Properties();
        Enumeration<URL> urls = classLoader.getResources(resourceName);

The Javadoc says that {{null}} is a valid value for this argument. However, the code does
not check the variable for {{null}} and just calls {{classLoader.getResources(resourceName)}}.
This check should be added and {{classLoader}} should be set to a reasonable value in case
it is {{null}}. I will add a pull request for a fix of this issue later.
