Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3215) Potential NullPointerException in CachedPage class
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2007 22:08:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3215?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12543704

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-3215:

I should mention that the wrong usage of FILE_WRITE_PAGE_EXCEPTION occurs in one more
instance in the same method (except for the one susceptible to the empty pointer). The patch

corrects both instances. There are no occurences in other classes.

> There's a potential for a NullPointerException to be thrown in the in the org.apache.derby.impl.store.raw.data.CachedPage
class.  In the writePage() method, there's a test of the myContainer reference to ensure it's
not null (line 771), however in the else block, myContainer is dereferenced (line 836), where
a NullPointerException is guaranteed to be thrown.
