Clicking help buttons triggers a NPE. This was from the "platform" menu in 200904111401
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.
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
Exception caught while parsing nbdocs:/org/netbeans/modules/web/helpset/docs/web-toc.xmljava.util.EmptyStackException
[catch] at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:637)
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
