> Hello,
> I'm currently trying to upgrade Struts from V2.3.20 to V2.3.30.
> Starting from V2.3.28, I'm having a yellow FreeMarker stack at the end of some pages.
These pages have a <s:form> tag without "action" attribute.
> Here is some part of the displayed error :
> {noformat}
> Java method "org.apache.struts2.components.Form.getValidators(String)" threw an exception
when invoked on org.apache.struts2.components.Form object "org.apache.struts2.components.Form@3d354929";
see cause exception in the Java stack trace.
> FTL stack trace ("~" means nesting-related):
> 	- Failed at: #list tag.getValidators("\$\{tagName\}"...  [in template "template/~~~css_xhtml/form-close-validate.ftl"
at line 66, column 9]
> 	- Reached through: #include "/\$\{parameters.templateDir\}...  [in template "template/xhtml/form-close.ftl"
at line 25, column 1]
> ...
> Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
> 	at org.apache.struts2.util.ComponentUtils.containsExpression(ComponentUtils.java:51)
> 	at org.apache.struts2.components.Component.findValue(Component.java:376)
> 	at org.apache.struts2.components.Component.findString(Component.java:226)
> 	at org.apache.struts2.components.Form.getValidators(Form.java:276)
> {noformat}
> Here are the results of my research :
> - When the method  org.apache.struts2.components.Form.getValidators(String name) is called
at the end of the page display, the "action" var is null.
> - findString(action) is called, leading to org.apache.struts2.components.Component.findValue(String
expr, Class toType) with expr=null
> - Starting from V2.3.28,  a new condition has been added to this method : if (ComponentUtils.containsExpression(expr)).
This raises the NPE.
> Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong ?
> Thanks in advance,
> Yan
