    Exception "llegalArgumentException: Null path " occured

    s ls Newbie

      I deployed a seam2's application in JBoss AS 7.1.0.Final. Exception "llegalArgumentException: Null path " occured.


      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Null path

      I made a module my.service. The module have a resource my_services.jar. In my_services.jar's root path, there is a seam.properties file.

      So  seam search seam.properties, my_services.jar is found. But,  url is like:


      In VFS.getChild method, url.toURI().getPath() is null. "llegalArgumentException: Null path " occured. Why getPath() method's return null?



      In JarFileResourceLoader#getJarURI method , file's URI is created by "new URI("jar", b.toString(), null)".

      The value of b.toString() is liking "file:/D:/opt/jboss-as-7.1.0.Final/modules/my/service/main/my_services.jar!/seam.properties".

      But the getPath() of URI that is created is null. So VFS.getChild method, url.toURI().getPath() is null. "Null path" exception occured.


      Is this a bug?  Is there any approach to avoid the error?
