      Description



      Name: dfC67450 Date: 02/13/98



      The java.text.MessageFormat.equals(Object) method does not work correctly.
      This method should return false if called with null argument
      (see general contract for equals(): JLS 1.0 item 20.1.3, page 459).
      But it throws NullPointerException.


      Here is the test demonstrating the bug:

      -----------------TestMF.java------------------------
      import java.text.*;

      public class TestMF {
          public static void main (String args[]){
              MessageFormat mf = new MessageFormat("");
              System.out.println(mf.equals(null));
          }
      }
      ---------Output from the test---------------------
      java.lang.NullPointerException
              at java.text.MessageFormat.equals(MessageFormat.java)
              at TestMF.main(TestMF.java:6)
      -------------------------------------------------
