Subject NullPointerException when calling returnFromDialog
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2011 06:39:58 GMT
I have a window that opens another window which then opens another window (Window 3). When
I'm trying to call returnFromDialog from Window 3, it sometimes throws a NullPointerException
on this line:
 at org.apache.myfaces.trinidadinternal.context.PageFlowScopeMap.discard(
 at org.apache.myfaces.trinidadinternal.context.PageFlowScopeProviderImpl.popPageFlowScope(
 at org.apache.myfaces.trinidadinternal.context.RequestContextImpl.returnFromDialog(
The NullPointerException is being thrown on this line:
_sharedData._parent._sharedData._children.removeOldEntry(childToken, storeMap);
because the children attribute is null.
I tried to debug the code and whenever I have my breakpoint on this line, I am able to replicate
this exception.
What I have found so far is that the returnFromDialog creates a new request to close the window.
This new request is setting the children attribute to null in the getToken() method. Whenever
the children attribute is nulled before the removeOldEntry is called from the discard() method,
I get the NullPointerException.
Is this a JSF bug or is there something I'm doing wrong with the dialogs?
I am currently using Trinidad 1.2.7.
