Subject [jira] Created: (HARMONY-1100) [classlib][io] compatibility: Harmony method DataOutputStream(null).writeBytes("") throws NPE while RI does not

[classlib][io] compatibility: Harmony method DataOutputStream(null).writeBytes("") throws NPE
while RI does not

                 Key: HARMONY-1100
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-1100
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Classlib
            Reporter: Vladimir Ivanov

The spec says for the java.io package: "Unless otherwise noted, passing a null argument to
a constructor or method in any class or interface in this package will cause a NullPointerException
to be thrown".
and says nothing about 'null' for DataOutputStream constructor.
So, according to spec the  DataOutputStream(null) should lead to the NPE instead of writeBytes
but according to RI no NPE for constructor and zero-length string for writeBytes.

=================== test.java =========================
import java.io.DataOutputStream;

public class test {
    public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {
        System.out.println("res = " + new DataOutputStream(null));
        new DataOutputStream(null).writeBytes("");
