Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-6535) TaskID default constructor results in NPE on toString()
Date Wed, 04 Nov 2015 22:30:27 GMT
Daniel Templeton created MAPREDUCE-6535:
-------------------------------------------

             Summary: TaskID default constructor results in NPE on toString()
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-6535
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-6535
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: mrv2
    Affects Versions: 2.6.0
            Reporter: Daniel Templeton
            Assignee: Daniel Templeton


This code will reproduce the issue:

{code}
new TaskAttemptID().toString();
{code}

The issue is that the default constructor leaves the type {{null}}.  The {{get()}} in {{CharTaskTypesMaps.getRepresentingCharacter()}}
then throws an NPE on the null type key.

The simplest solution would be to only call the {{get()}} on line 288 of {{TaskID.java}} if
{{type}} is not {{null}} and return some other literal otherwise.  Since no part of the code
is tripping on the NPE, what we choose for the literal shouldn't matter.  How about "x"?
