      Description

      Name: eaR10174 Date: 10/22/2003


        The method javax.xml.xpath.XPathException.getMessage() returns a string representation
      of the wrapped exception (see test.java below) in case when an instance of XPathException
      is create by the constructor
        
           public XPathException(String message, Throwable e)

      with the parameters: message = null, e = Exception("test").

      This behavior is not specified in the javadoc of the class XPathException, so the value
      null is expected to be returned.

        The bug appears in jdk1.5.0beta-b24 and affects a new JCK1.5 test:
        
          api/javax_xml/xpath/XPathException/index.html#Ctor[Ctor007]

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

      public class test {

          public static void main (String[] args) {
              XPathException xPathException = new XPathException(null, new Exception("test"));
              
              String message = xPathException.getMessage();
              if (message != null) {
                  System.out.println("Expected null. Returned: " + message);
              } else {
                  System.out.println("OK.");
              }
          }
      }
