Description eppesuigoccas 2004-08-28 11:54:03 UTC
I have been using NetBeans 3.6 with IBM JVM 1.4.1
for some months. Today I did find a problem in the
JVM and I had to upgrade to 1.4.2 (still from IBM,
powerpc 32bit version).
When running NetBeans I get many
"NullPointerException: Reference queue cannot be
null" during startup.

Comment 2 Petr Nejedly 2004-08-30 09:59:23 UTC
A bug in openide/text. The code passes null queue argument to
Reference ctor, which is documented to throw NPE, but was never
implemented so (actually, the implementation does pass null internally
in some cases).

The same implementation was in IBM jdk till at least 1.4.1, but it
seems that IBM have fixed the implementation according to documentation...

This issue was solved long time ago. Because nobody has reopened it neither
added comments, we are verifying/closing it now. 
If you are still able to reproduce the problem, please reopen. Thanks in advance.
