CAccessibility throws null pointer at line 626

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_45"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Darwin macpro 14.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 14.3.0: Mon Mar 23 11:59:05 PDT 2015; root:xnu-2782.20.48~5/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      CAccessibility in the package sun.lwawt.macosx does not check for null when getting JAVA_AX_VISIBLE_CHILDREN. It does not seem to consider that context.getAccessibleComponent() could return null, so the stack trace and such is getting spammed to the log.
      I suspect that this will happen with ac.getAccessibleSelection() as well on line 628

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      No Null pointer exception
      ACTUAL -
      Null pointer exception
