Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-1235) NullPointerException due to misconfigured watched dir

NullPointerException due to misconfigured watched dir

                 Key: FELIX-1235
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1235
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: File Install
    Affects Versions:  fileinstall-1.0.0
         Environment: Windows [Vista|XP]
            Reporter: Guido Spadotto
             Fix For: fileinstall-1.2.0

The "traverse" method of the DirectoryWatcher class will raise a NPE if the provided "jardir"
parameter does not point to a directory.
The for loop inside that method should read:
for (int i = 0; (list!=null) && (i < list.length); i++){...}

To avoid hiding the configuration problem, the constructor of the DirectoryWatcher class could
be amended like this:

this.watchedDirectory = new File(dir);
        if (!this.watchedDirectory.exists()){                
            if (!this.watchedDirectory.mkdirs()) { throw new RuntimeException("Failed to create
directory " + this.watchedDirectory.getAbsolutePath());}
            if (this.watchedDirectory.isDirectory()){
                log(this.watchedDirectory.getAbsolutePath() + " already existing", null);
                log(this.watchedDirectory.getAbsolutePath() + " exists, but is not a directory",
                throw new RuntimeException(this.watchedDirectory.getAbsolutePath()+" exists,
but is not a directory");

Object value = properties.get(START_NEW_BUNDLES);
