Subject Re: bizarre NPE exception
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 01:51:45 GMT
Hi Pat,

I don't know Glassfish as well as other containers, but according to
Wikipedia[1], "It uses a derivative of Apache Tomcat </wiki/Apache_Tomcat> as
the servlet </wiki/Servlet> container for serving Web content"

You mentioned that this problem occurs when deploying a new WAR file - that
would agree with aforementioned likely classloader disposal problems. And it
currently agrees with your stack traces and the NPE you are seeing, which
looks to relate to a static char[] in that class, which is caching the time
in HH:mm:ss format for performance reasons.

Best
Brett
