Subject Re: NullPointerException in DeltaIteration when no ForwardedFileds annotation
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2015 11:09:01 GMT
That looks pretty much like a bug.

As you said, fwd fields annotations are optional and may improve the
performance of a program, but never change its semantics (if set correctly).

I'll have a look at it later.
Would be great if you could provide some data to reproduce the bug.
