    Misterious NPE

    José Freitas Newbie

      Hey guys,

      I'm trying to run arquillian-hellojsf after updating jsfunit-arquillian to use arquillian.CR1 spi.

      Everything seems to be working well with the arquillian extension. and most of tests run without error.


      but when I click on a submit button, something bad happens while parsing the response.





         //commented everything cookie related to isolate click on submit

          // @Cookies(names = { "cookie1", "cookie2" }, values = { "value1", "value2" })

          public void testCustomCookies(JSFClientSession client, JSFServerSession server) throws IOException {

              // Assert.assertEquals("value1", getCookieValue(server, "cookie1"));

              // Assert.assertEquals("value2", getCookieValue(server, "cookie2"));


              // verify that cookies survive for the whole session


              // Assert.assertEquals("value1", getCookieValue(server, "cookie1"));

              // Assert.assertEquals("value2", getCookieValue(server, "cookie2"));




      on method WebClient.loadDownloadedResponses()

      line 2127 it calls loadWebResponseInto(downloadedResponse.response_, win);

      which tries to create a page with PageCreator

      newPage = pageCreator_.createPage(webResponse, webWindow);


      the method tries to parseHtml with a page that seems the real deal: HtmlPage(


      the content extracted from this page it's not null, but I couldn't see the output

      it's kinda short though: count=2096

      InputStream content = webResponse.getContentAsStream();

      XMLInputSource in = new XMLInputSource(null, url.toString(), null, content, charset);


      the problem happens when parsing



      the Throwable target is null.

      and this is the exception:




      so guys, do you have a clue of what it could be?

      I hope that I provided enough information.

          just saw the inputStream content (extracted from InputStream content = webResponse.getContentAsStream()) as a string


          and it seems perfect!

            I followed up with the problem this morning and I found out that the problem is the &quot; on the validation message:

            <span class="errorMessage">form1:input_foo_text: Erro de validação: o comprimento é menor do que o mínimo permitido de &quot;2&quot;</span>


            it breaks when trying to:

            int c = HTMLEntities.get(name);

            //name is quot


            I could not debug further, eclipse couldn't evaluate the expression.

            But in one of the files that hold entries loaded to Entities, theres an entry for quot:




            so everything seems fine. Any clues on how to proceed? is this a known bug?

              I found the problem, I wasn't adding those property files on the jar  built with shrinkwrap.

                I had this too.   It took me too long to learn the problem using eclipse debugger.



                Here is shrinkwrap call to add the resources which 2.0.0.Beta1 doesn't, but should (on the ground that jsfunit bundles the classes that uses these into the test archive):

                  Hey John, thanks for the post reply, it will help people looking for a solution while a new version is not available, I should had think on that.


                  for the next version those files and a couple of other ones, will be loaded too.
