Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-261) NullPointerException occurred in BrokerImpl.java
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2007 22:09:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-261?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12506312
] 

Patrick Linskey commented on OPENJPA-261:
-----------------------------------------

So you're saying that Collections.EMPTY_LIST.iterator() is returning null? That seems surprising.
What version of Java are you using? Can you check if your Java version is returning null from
Collecitons.EMPTY_LIST.iterator()?

> While I was testing against the openjpa code, I got a NPE in the BrokerImpl.endtransaction()
method. The method set the transState to an empty Collection if there is no cache for transactions.
Later the code did not check this Collection and tried to iterate on it and a NullPointerException
occurred.
> Original code:
> Collection transStates = _transCache;
>         if (transStates == null)
>             transStates = Collections.EMPTY_LIST;
> .....
> for (Iterator itr = transStates.iterator(); itr.hasNext();) {  <--- NPE occurred here.

>             try {
>                 if (rollback) {
>                     // tell objects that may have been derefed then flushed
>                     // (and therefore deleted) to un-deref
>                     sm.setDereferencedDependent(false, false);
>                     sm.rollback();
>                 } else
>                     sm.commit();
>             } catch (RuntimeException re) {
>                 exceps = add(exceps, re);
>             }
>          }
> I put a check before this "for" loop then the NPE disappeared.
> if (!transStates.isEmpty()) {   
>         	for (Iterator itr = transStates.iterator(); itr.hasNext();) {
>             sm = (StateManagerImpl) itr.next();
