Description Paul Stitt 2001-07-03 03:04:13 UTC
When using the xerces SAX parser to parse a file that is greater than 2 Gb, it 
seems that the parser works up to the 2 Gb point, then fails with a null 
pointer exception as follows:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
        at java.lang.Throwable.fillInStackTrace(Native Method)
        at java.lang.Throwable.fillInStackTrace(Compiled Code)
        at java.lang.Throwable.<init>(Compiled Code)
        at java.lang.Exception.<init>(Compiled Code)
        at org.xml.sax.SAXException.<init>(SAXException.java:61)
        at org.apache.xerces.framework.XMLParser.parse(Compiled Code)
        at test.LoadWdSimData3.execute(LoadWdSimData3.java:79)
        at test.LoadWdSimData3.main(LoadWdSimData3.java:30)

JDK version is 1.2.1_04c native threads.
