Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-309) NullPointerException in StatusHttpServer
Date Tue, 20 Jun 2006 06:01:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-309?page=comments#action_12416851 ] 

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-309:

These were the exact same problems I encountered when I ran the unit tests. I had to define
hadoop.log.dir (in the build.xml file) and had to put the "build" directory (which contains
the webapps) in the CLASSPATH.

> The NullPointerException happens in the constructor of StatusHttpServer because the System
property "hadoop.log.dir" is undefined.

variables defined in hadoop scripts.
