      Description

      Name: eaR10174 Date: 10/22/2003


        The constructor of the class javax.xml.xpath.XPathException
        
            public XPathException(Exception exception)

      throws NullPointerException in case when the parameter exception is null (see test.java).

        The constructor

            public XPathException(String message, Throwable e)
            
      throws NullPointerException in case when the parameter message is null and the parameter e
      is null (see test.java).

      This behavior is not specified in the javadoc of the class XPathException.

        The bug appears in jdk1.5.0beta-b24 and affects new JCK1.5 tests:
        
          api/javax_xml/xpath/XPathException/index.html#Ctor[Ctor002]
          api/javax_xml/xpath/XPathException/index.html#Ctor[Ctor009]

      ------------------------------------test.java-----------------------------
      import javax.xml.xpath.XPathException;

      public class test {

          public static void main (String[] args) {
              try {
                  XPathException xPathException = new XPathException((Exception)null);
                  System.out.println("OK: XPathException((Exception)null)");
              } catch (NullPointerException e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
              }

              try {
                  XPathException xPathException = new XPathException(null, null);
                  System.out.println("OK: XPathException(null, null)");
              } catch (NullPointerException e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
              }
          }
      }
