Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1512) Documentum Connector throws NPE when a job is run after a document is deleted from the repository
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2018 05:23:00 GMT


James Thomas commented on CONNECTORS-1512:

Thanks, yes, I highlighted the fact that it was the same lines because it was unexpected.

I believe that I have now got the patch deployed and the DM and MF servers running without
NPE through my repro.

In case it's useful data, I think the build and deploy of the patch were actually OK. The
things that got in my way were configuration:

* setting the MCF_HOME environment variable
* setting the DOCUMENTUM environment variable
* editing my CLASSPATH workaround (see earlier in this thread) for the Documentum scripts

My inexperience with your software is a barrier for me here. Thanks again for your help.

> I see an NPE from the Documentum Connector when I re-run a job after deleting a file
from the Documentum repository using the Documentum Administrator:
> {code:java}
> FATAL 2018-06-29T08:36:54,847 (Worker thread '5') - Error tossed: null

>   at org.apache.manifoldcf.crawler.connectors.DCTM.DCTM$
> {code}
> The job then appears not to terminate in the Manifold UI.  If the job is not aborted,
the NPE will show again after restarting the Manifold server and Documentum Connectors.
> I expect the connectors to handle deletion of source in the repository, passing the appropriate
status to the output connector, and not failing like this.
> Reproduce:
> * Configure Manifold to use Documentum Connectors to talk to a Documentum instance
> * Sanity check your configuration by 
> ** create a directory in Documentum, D, with two files F, G
> ** create a job in Manifold to take from D and write to the file system in directory
> ** run the job and observe that F, G appear in L
> * delete G from D in Documentum 
> ** in Documentum Administrator, right click on G and choose Delete, then OK
> * re-run your job
> * observe that the job doesn't end
> * inspect L 
> * observe that F and G are both still present
> * inspect the Manifold logs
> * observe NPE in the logs
> In the log file I'll attach,  F and G are Book1.xlsx and Book1.xls
