Subject [jira] [Created] (ROL-1948) getRealPath() null not handled
Date Wed, 14 Nov 2012 12:46:15 GMT
Jürgen Weber created ROL-1948:
---------------------------------

             Summary: getRealPath() null not handled
                 Key: ROL-1948
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ROL-1948
             Project: Roller
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Configuration & Settings
    Affects Versions: 5.0
            Reporter: Jürgen Weber
            Assignee: Roller Unassigned


I tryed to deploy the roller war file by putting a roller.xml into conf/Catalina/localhost
<Context path="/roller" docBase="/roller-weblogger-5.0.1-tomcat/webapp/roller-5.0.1-tomcat"

Roller dies without any log entries, there is only on the console
Nov 14, 2012 1:17:40 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext startInternal
SEVERE: Error listenerStart

in logs/localhost.2012-11-14.log there is
java.lang.NullPointerException
        at org.apache.roller.weblogger.ui.core.RollerContext.contextInitialized(RollerContext.java:112)

This is because String ctxPath = servletContext.getRealPath("/"); is null
and the next line is
        if(!ctxPath.endsWith(File.separator))
which results in NPE

This should be handled.
