Description Jaroslav Pospisil 2010-05-24 13:05:54 UTC
This bug was originally marked as duplicate of bug 170309, that is already resolved. This bug is still valid, so this seems to be another bug, but it might be related.

VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM, 16.3-b01, Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment, 1.6.0_20-b02
OS: Windows Vista

Comment 1 Jaroslav Pospisil 2010-05-24 13:26:06 UTC
Issue is reproducible only from clean IDE - if I create any other project
previously (Maven Quickstart Project,for example),nothing bad happens.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Pospisil 2010-05-24 13:27:34 UTC
This issue has also the same exception log as issue 170039,already fixed.
Comment 3 Tomas Pavek 2010-05-24 14:12:03 UTC
Tried the last mentioned steps:
> Started IDE with clean userdir and invoked new Maven Netbeans
> App - NPE occured during initial activation of components.
but it works for me in 201005202201 RC build, no NPE.

BTW the correct number of the other issue issue is issue 170309.

Comment 5 Jaroslav Tulach 2010-05-24 14:16:45 UTC
The problem seems to be that, when enabling apisupport, associated maven support is not enabled. In case Maven is essential part of apisupport, the apisupport.kit shall have proper dependencies on it. Or at least it shall recommend maven...

Comment 7 Jesse Glick 2010-05-24 17:50:20 UTC
While apisupport.kit could recommend maven.apisupport, there is no hard dependency that I know of. Looks like a bug in ergonomics to me.
Comment 8 David Simonek 2010-05-25 14:57:55 UTC
I'm not able to reproduce. Anyway reassigning...
Comment 9 Jaroslav Tulach 2010-05-26 12:36:36 UTC
Dafe, if you cannot reproduce, then the proper resolution is "worksforme", as far as I know.
Comment 10 Jaroslav Pospisil 2010-05-26 12:49:35 UTC
Not reproducible with latest build,so I agree.
