Subject FAQs always generate a NullPointer
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2003 10:05:31 GMT
Hey all,

I have noticed that Forrest or one of its counterparts is generating a 
NullPointerException when building my site. It seems to do this whilst 
building the FAQ pages. Here is an example:

  * [28] security/openssl.html
  * [0] security/index.pdf
  * [25] cliprun/reqspec.html
  * [0] cliprun/index.pdf
  * [25] ingest_agents/reqspec.html
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.NullPointerException
  * [25] ingest_agents/faq.html
  * [0] ingest_agents/index.pdf
  * [27] mccann/functionslist.html
  * [27] mccann/mcann-systest.html
  * [27] mccann/ingest-test.html

This little example appears about 5 times during the complete site build 
and always occurrs during the FAQ page. Here is the FAQ page that causes 
the above error:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE faqs PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD FAQ V1.1//EN" "dtd/faq-v11.dtd">

<faqs title="&lt;module name&gt; Frequently Asked Questions">

     <part id="inst">
         <title>Installation problems</title>

         <faq id="npex">
                 Why do I get a NullPointerException when I try to login?
                 <p>Because the system is not configured corectly. 
Please refer to
                 standard Arkemedia installation docs.</p>

         <faq id="lgnmsgs">
                 What is the difference between the messages "Sorry, 
unable to
                 log you in at this time" and "Error logging in" when I 
try to login?
                     "Sorry, unable to log you in at this time" means 
that the
                     system failed in some way, probably due to incorrect
                     "Error logging in" means that the username and 
password are
         <!-- More faqs or parts here -->
     <!-- More faqs or parts here -->


Can anyone tell me why this is happening? The site seems to build fine, 
but it's still rather worrying...
