Comment 2 Vladimir Voskresensky 2010-06-11 10:47:36 UTC
it was "run" of bunha sample on OpenSolaris using express 10/6
Comment 3 Maria Tishkova 2010-12-10 08:48:51 UTC
I cannot reproduce the problem. The source code was re-written in the DLightSession and the line from stack cannot give NPE. I will close as WORKSFORME
Comment 4 Vladimir Voskresensky 2011-10-03 11:27:16 UTC
easily reproduced with clean userdir on e**f when created Quote sample and started THA
Comment 5 Vladimir Voskresensky 2011-10-03 11:28:19 UTC
Looks like key point here: default toolchain used in project is tied to Studio 12

please, review patch for 701
Comment 8 Andrew Krasny 2011-10-03 13:29:48 UTC
There are 2 more places where result of getDataStorageFor is not verified for null value... Shouldn't these be handled as well?

Proposed patch
Comment 10 Vladimir Voskresensky 2011-10-03 16:28:53 UTC
next proposed patch is better. Although it's preferable to have logic used before introduction of proxy storages. Otherwise collectors are started even in case of missing storages

Reworked patch

Proposed patch contains:
- prevention of possible NPEs related to absence of particular storages;
- earlier initialization of serviceInfoDataStorage
Comment 12 Vladimir Voskresensky 2011-10-03 19:39:19 UTC
Patch is good. The only question I have:
how initial split by two exclusive groups 'idproviders' and 'collectors' handles the situation when collector was not able to be initialized due to absence storage, wehn it is still indicator data provider.
How it will be inited? it's not in list  'idproviders'
Comment 13 Andrew Krasny 2011-10-04 07:49:41 UTC
Isn't it what is commented in the patch?
+                /*
+                 * DataCollector usually acts as IndicatorDataProvider..
+                 * It could be that infrastructure cannot provide all needed
+                 * storages for the collector. This means that collector will
+                 * not be able to *store* any data, still it *may* be able to
+                 * act as an IndicatorDataProvider (with transient data).
+                 *
+                 * So do unconditional init with serviceInfoDataStorage.
+                 * This will give a chance for collector to at least provide
+                 * some information for Indicators...
+                 *
+                 * Note: It is collector's responsibility to handle the
+                 * situation when it was not initialized with DataStorages!
+                 *
+                 * Note: Collector *will* be notified about session start even
+                 * if it was not initialized with any DataStorage.
+                 *
+                 */
+                toolCollector.init(serviceInfoDataStorage);

take #3

This time both operations:
+                toolCollector.init(serviceInfoDataStorage);
+                addDataFilterListener(toolCollector);
are performed unconditionally (even if cannot find all needed storages).
So in this case DataFilter events will be available to the toolCollector.. 

Also I have split the patch into two.
This one contains changes related to infrastructure.
The second one (will attach) related to preparing ProcFSDataCollector to the situation if no storage provided...

Comment 16 Vladimir Voskresensky 2011-10-04 11:50:50 UTC
I've reviewed both patches and now they looks like complete solution of the problem. 
Thanks for splitting as well.

I agree there should be an extra fix which also keep sequence of calls in order as was before
