Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1035) NPE when trying to create an error message response of RPC
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2013 18:35:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1035?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13731064#comment-13731064

Steve Loughran commented on YARN-1035:

Looking up the stack, it's in
    private void doSaslReply(Exception ioe) throws IOException {
      setupResponse(authFailedResponse, authFailedCall,
          RpcStatusProto.FATAL, RpcErrorCodeProto.FATAL_UNAUTHORIZED,
          null, ioe.getClass().getName(), ioe.getLocalizedMessage());

This code assumes that the {{ioe.getLocalizedMessage()}} always returns a non-null string.
Some exceptions do return null. For a robust response, {{ioe.toString()}} should be used.

> I'm seeing an NPE which is raised when the server is trying to create an error response
to send back to the caller and there is no error text.
> The root cause is probably somewhere in SASL, but sending something back to the caller
would seem preferable to NPE-ing server-side.
