Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49386] New: Null creation date in PPTX file causes NPE
Date Thu, 03 Jun 2010 22:01:34 GMT

           Summary: Null creation date in PPTX file causes NPE
           Product: POI
           Version: 3.6
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows Vista
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HSLF
        AssignedTo: dev@poi.apache.org

PPTX showing NPE

When Tika tried to read metadata from a PPTX that has a null creation date, an
NPE occurs in PackagePropertiesPart.getDateValue. 

    private String getDateValue(Nullable<Date> d) {
        if (d == null) {
            return "";
        SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat(
        return df.format(d.getValue());

Although the code checks whether d is null, it appears that d.getValue()
returns null, and an NPE is thrown in SimpleDateFormat.format:

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
    at java.util.Calendar.setTime(Calendar.java:1075)
    at java.text.SimpleDateFormat.format(SimpleDateFormat.java:876)
    at java.text.SimpleDateFormat.format(SimpleDateFormat.java:869)
    at java.text.DateFormat.format(DateFormat.java:316)
