Subject [jira] Created: (SYNAPSE-205) NPE in HttpCoreNIOSender and "I/O reactor has been shut down"

NPE in HttpCoreNIOSender and "I/O reactor has been shut down"

                 Key: SYNAPSE-205
             Project: Synapse
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Transports
    Affects Versions: NIGHTLY
            Reporter: Andreas Veithen
            Priority: Critical

When the target service is not available, a request to the proxy service causes the following

Exception in thread "HttpCoreNIOSender" java.lang.NullPointerException
	at org.apache.synapse.transport.nhttp.HttpCoreNIOSender$3.handleError(
	at org.apache.synapse.transport.nhttp.HttpCoreNIOSender$3.timeout(
	at org.apache.http.impl.nio.reactor.SessionRequestImpl.timeout(
	at org.apache.http.impl.nio.reactor.DefaultConnectingIOReactor.processTimeouts(
	at org.apache.http.impl.nio.reactor.DefaultConnectingIOReactor.processEvents(
	at org.apache.http.impl.nio.reactor.AbstractMultiworkerIOReactor.execute(
	at org.apache.synapse.transport.nhttp.HttpCoreNIOSender.executeClientEngine(
	at org.apache.synapse.transport.nhttp.HttpCoreNIOSender.access$000(
	at org.apache.synapse.transport.nhttp.HttpCoreNIOSender$

Any further request then fails with "java.lang.IllegalStateException: I/O reactor has been
shut down".

The instruction in HttpCoreNIOSender that causes the NPE is as follows:

MessageContext nioFaultMessageContext =
        mc, new AxisFault(exception.toString(), exception));

Probably, when handleError is called by the timeout (rather than the failed) method, as is
the case here (see stacktrace), exception is null. The handleError method doesn't handle this
situation appropriately.

Note that this issue is similar but not identical to the one described in SYNAPSE-168.
