---------------------------------

             Summary: Fix a StoreFileScanner NPE in reverse scan flow
                 Key: HBASE-12767
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12767
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: regionserver, Scanners
    Affects Versions: 0.98.9, 1.0.0, 2.0.0
            Reporter: Liang Xie
            Assignee: Liang Xie


we observed a NPE in our internal 0.94 branch prd env:

ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.HRegionServer: Failed openScanner
java.lang.NullPointerException

at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.HRegionServer.openScanner(HRegionServer.java:2715)

After tracing, it turned out a boundary bug at HalfStoreFileReader. If we have a reverse scan
request at "bottom" part, once the start row >= the last row at bottom part, the NPE will
be encourtered, since we will invoke "next()", and "atEnd = true" will be called in HalfStoreFileReader,
then when we want to do "seekBefore" or other sth in StoreFileScanner,  StoreFileScanner.cur
will call:
{code}
      public Cell getKeyValue() {
        if (atEnd) return null;
{code}

The fix is simple, we need to reset the "atEnd" flag once seekBefore op is successful. You
can undo my HalfStoreFileReader change and run the next case to see NPE.
ps: I also found some cases in TestHRegion missing the "@Test" annotation, so fix them in
the same patch as well.
