Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-2581) Get NPE when custom node was updated
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2010 14:35:27 GMT
Get NPE when custom node was updated

                 Key: JCR-2581
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2581
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jackrabbit-core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
         Environment: Windows XP
JDK 1.5.12
JBoss 4.2.3
            Reporter: Stas

I try to upgrade jackrabbit version in my project from 1.6 to 2.0. Some things from 2.0 are
very usable. Thank you all for your job. But after transition on new version i get "magic"
problems. I often catch NPE exception from inside jackrabbit api. After some investigations
and tests i had found one of many problems.

What i do in my test?
I declare custom node type in cnd file. Then register it.

 [my:test] > nt:folder
  - myp:html (string)
  = ''

Call method create.

private void testCreate(String name, String html, CredentialsTO credentials){
        Node docRootNode;
        Session session = null;
        try {
            session = getSession(credentials);
            docRootNode = session.getRootNode();

            Node testNode = docRootNode.addNode(name, "my:test");
            testNode.setProperty("myp:html", html);


        } catch (Exception e) {
            //do something
        } finally {

Then do update.

 private void testUpdate(String name, String html, CredentialsTO credentials){
        Session session = null;
        Node docRootNode;

        try {
            session = getSession(credentials);
            docRootNode = session.getRootNode();
            Node testNode =  docRootNode.getNode(name);

            testNode.setProperty("myp:html", html);


        }  catch (Exception e) {
            // do something
        } finally {

After last checkin in update method i always catch NullPointerException. I had connected src
of jcr and jackrabbit and done some debug. This is method which throw exception in org.apache.jackrabbit.core.ItemManager.

 private boolean canRead(ItemData data, Path path) throws AccessDeniedException, RepositoryException
        // JCR-1601: cached item may just have been invalidated
        ItemState state = data.getState();
        if (state == null) {
            throw new InvalidItemStateException(data.getId() + ": the item does not exist
        if (state.getStatus() == ItemState.STATUS_NEW &&
                !data.getDefinition().isProtected()) {  // THIS IS RIGHT PLACE data.getDefinition()
= null
            // NEW items can always be read as long they have been added
            // through the API and NOT by the system (i.e. protected props).
            return true;
        } else {
            return (path == null) ?
                    canRead(data.getId()) :

I don't understand when and why definition in NodeData can be null? This is my fault, wrong
settings of repository or bug of jackrabbit?
