Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2548) NullPointerException through client/am/EncryptionManager
Date Fri, 30 Apr 2010 11:06:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2548?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12862629#action_12862629

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-2548:

I don't think this NPE is supposed to be returned to the application. ClientBaseDataSource
calls EncryptionManager's constructor just to check if it fails, and expects that it fails
on some platforms. Since the NPE is thrown by the error handler in EncryptionManager, adding
a null check to prevent the NPE will only have the effect that an am.SqlException is thrown
instead, and that exception will also be (intentionally) swallowed by ClientBaseDataSource.
The NPE is only thrown when the constructor is called this way, and agent is null because
ClientBaseDataSource does not have an Agent object to use in a static context.

Since this issue doesn't cause any user-visible problems and there hasn't been any interest
in fixing it since it was logged three years ago, I propose we close it as "Won't Fix".
