Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCR-3111) InternalVersionManagerBase; missing null check after getNode()
Date Fri, 14 Oct 2011 10:24:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3111?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13127415#comment-13127415
] 

Julian Reschke commented on JCR-3111:
-------------------------------------

Actually, NodeStateEx.getNode(name, ...) *only* returns null if the child node entry is not
found:

        ChildNodeEntry entry = nodeState.getChildNodeEntry(name, index);
        if (entry == null) {
            return null;
        }

...otherwise it throws. So if the NPE happens in getVersionHistoryOfNode (and it has...),
this indicates that some strange is happening which can't even be explained by inconsistent
storage. 

So a better approach seems to be to simply add null checks, and add better diagnostics for
now. Maybe this will help understanding what's going on next time it happens.

> There are at least two instances where we check for a node with hasNode(), and then call
getNode() without checking for null.
