Bug in ServerConstants cause NPE when is missing

                 Key: GERONIMO-2213
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Jason Dillon
         Assigned To: Jason Dillon
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 1.2

Looks like there is a minor bug in ServerConstants with this:

static {
        Properties versionInfo = new Properties();
        try {
        } catch ( e) {
            throw new ExceptionInInitializerError(new Exception("Could not load",

The problem is that if the properties files is not found, then a NPE is thrown which does
not get caught by the IOException handler and then resulting ExceptionInInitializerError error
does not contain the detail as to why.

I'm seeing this when trying to build the m2 site, looks like clover is not picking up the
resources because they are not in the standard location where m2 suggests they be.

While it is a minor problem, we really should modules to use the standard locations soonish.

I'm going to fix this with:

static {
        Properties versionInfo = new Properties();
        try {
            InputStream input = ServerConstants.class.getClassLoader().getResourceAsStream("org/apache/geronimo/system/serverinfo/");
            if (input == null) {
                throw new Error("Missing");

        catch ( e) {
            throw new Error("Could not load", e);
