Description Milan Kubec 2004-10-13 13:34:52 UTC
[200410121800, JDK 1.5.0_01]

I added JDK 1.3.1_07, JDK 1.4.2_05, JDK 1.5.0
platforms to IDE. Opened project that had 1.3.1_07
platform set and run the project - OK. Then I
changed the platform for the project to JDK
1.4.2_05. After parsing I did Clean Build and then
I invoked 'Run Project' - Run Project dialog (for
selecting Main Class) was opened and
NullPointerException was thrown. Then any other
attempt to run the project ended up with the

After IDE restart project can be executed but after changing platform
again the problem is back again.

Comment 4 Milan Kubec 2004-10-14 13:14:29 UTC
It seems to be related to the particular project, so I've attached the
project. The project was created some time (weeks) ago.
Comment 5 Jiri Rechtacek 2004-10-14 14:20:48 UTC
Looks as problem in java/javacore/JMManager.getJavaExtent() returns
null for a valid source folder on classpath.
Reproducible only with attached project, could be decrease the priority.
Comment 6 Milan Kubec 2004-10-14 14:24:49 UTC
Priority could be lowered but after verifying what's wrong with the
particular project.

Comment 8 Milan Kubec 2004-10-22 09:09:54 UTC
I got exactly the same trace when trying in build 20041021. It's
better now - second attempt to run the project is successful.
Comment 9 Jan Becicka 2004-10-22 10:47:27 UTC
I tried tu run attached project and this message was written to output

D:\temp\TestPlatform\nbproject\build-impl.xml:70: Platform is not
correctly set up

So I correctly set up the platform and executed project without
problem. Then I added two new platforms (1.5 and 1.4.2_05) and
switched platform to 1.5. Then I executed projects without any
problem. Then I switched platform to 1.4.2_05 and did clean - build -
run without any problem. Then I switched to Default Platform and run,
and switch and run and switch and run. Simply I'm not able to
reproduce it.

I tried it also with JDK 1.5 and got another exception. I filed
separate report (issue 50734).

It is probably race condition caused by missing transaction.
Comment 10 Jiri Rechtacek 2004-10-22 11:00:41 UTC
Why assigned to me? Should I do a workaround of this bug in run
action? I think that not
Btw: For me nor reproducible on dev 041022 with TestPlatform.
Comment 11 Martin Matula 2004-10-22 14:12:32 UTC
Jirko, I think this issue is assigned to you because this could be a
race condition. I see that the getMainClasses() method does not do its
queries to the index in a transaction. ClassIndex methods are not
synchronized since they should not be accessed out of a transaction. I
would recommend adding beginTrans and endTrans to the getMainClasses
method (at the beginning and end). Please use the following pattern:
try {
    ... // current body of getMainClasses method
} finally {
Comment 12 Jiri Rechtacek 2004-10-25 10:39:34 UTC
Ok, I enclosed arr calling to JavaMM to a transaction. I hope it's fixed.
