Description theshadow27 2009-04-12 02:31:44 UTC
Clicking help buttons triggers a NPE. This was from the "platform" menu in 200904111401
Comment 1 theshadow27 2009-04-12 02:36:17 UTC
1) Open build 200904111401
2) Click Tools -> Java Platforms
3) Click "Help" button in lower right hand corner

NPE is triggered on first run. This is on a fresh user directory.

I first saw this issue when clicking the Help > Help Contents menu. A result of this exception is that there is no TOC
in the help window.
Comment 3 Masaki Katakai 2009-05-24 12:10:01 UTC
This should be P1 - I'm still seeing this issue on build 200905231401.
It looks /org/netbeans/modules/web/helpset/docs/web-toc.xml is not correct.

Parsing failed for nbdocs:/org/netbeans/modules/web/helpset/docs/web-toc.xml

P2: Same behaviour when click on the popup menu Server->Identity Usage

Not sure why we have this Identity Usage Popup menu there either....Not consistent with help system at all
