Cut out a body of text from a source file with command+c. Exception immediately came.
Comment 3 Dusan Balek 2016-09-13 08:20:26 UTC
Null should not be passed as a parent path to the TreePath constructor.
Comment 4 Svata Dedic 2016-11-10 10:02:45 UTC
Reporters: could you please attach the entire source, or at least a fragment of it ? The defect is triggered by a piece of code which is a candidate to convert to try-with-resources:

[final] X var = ...; // X extends AutoCloseable
(code possibly wrapped in try - finally)

var.close(); // possibly in finally clause

It's possible that the code fragment which triggers the defect contains a syntax error or something which screws up the parse tree.

Dusane: It seems the null item in the BlockTree.getStatements() list comes from javac's output for the source code, not the pattern. The defect exists across different javac versions in the code path triggered by the same set of patterns.

Not sure what triggered it.
