      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_45"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b15)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      sun.awt.AppContext is null when changing from com.sun.javaws.security.JavaWebStartSecurity to System.setSecurityManager(null).

      This problem started with 7u25. It only appears when using java web start with RMI and setting SecurityManager null.

      Scenario:
      Two separate jnlp apps Producer (P) and Consumer (C) are started from a webserver.
      All exceptions appear in C.
      Both P and C set SecurityManager to null.

      Exceptions 1) and 2) are inside a rmi thread in C where P notifies C about a change. And when C tries to do stuff with the Swing GUI the exceptions are thrown.

      Exception 3) is not in an RMI thread. C calls a method inside P using RMI and the exception is shown in C but the NPE happens inside P before the method is reached. My guess is because com.sun.deploy.uitoolkit.ToolkitStore.get().getAppContext() is used which returns null due to same bug as with exceptions 1) and 2).

      last time it worked in 7u21.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Change SecurityManager from class from com.sun.javaws.security.JavaWebStartSecurity to null.

      In an RMI Thread that exists inside the JVM where SecurityManager was set to null, call SwingUtillities.invokeLater

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      no NPE
      ACTUAL -
      NPE(s)

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      Test case is too complicated to be created as it involves jnlp/java webstart.

      But for exceptions 1) and 2) see example project https://github.com/bdt-stru/java8error which generates similar exceptions.

      Exception 3) could not be replicated in another project. But fixing 1) and 2) should fix 3) too.

      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Current workaround is staying with java < 7u25

      Exceptions 1) and 2) can be bypassed by doing the work in another non RMI-Thread.

      Exception 3) however cannot be bypassed as it happens before own code is reached.
