Subject [jira] [Resolved] (DERBY-6396) NullPointerException in DirFile
Date Mon, 04 Nov 2013 10:16:17 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6396?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Knut Anders Hatlen resolved DERBY-6396.
---------------------------------------

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 10.10.1.3

I backported the fix to the 10.10 branch. I did not backport the test, since it depends on
the java.io.File.setReadable() method, which is not available on all platforms supported by
10.10.

> We got a NullPointerException trying to start a Derby database in embedded mode; the
stacktrace indicated it happened in org.apache.derby.impl.io.DirFile.deleteAll(); that method
got called from org.apache.derby.impl.io.BaseStorageFactory.createTempDir().
> After investigating, it appears that the deleteAll() method calls "super.list()", which
according to the java.io.File specifications, can return null. But the deleteAll() method
doesn't handle that case gracefully.
