  • When a job is deleted the clearcase plugin attempts to remove the view that it uses. As it is not set to create the view and it is not set to remove the view on rename this is a surprise. I see two issues here: 1) the plugin attempts to delete a view that it did not create and was not told to manage. 2) it would appear that the plugin is attempting to delete the wrong view name. The user is logged in. The job settings related to the clearcase plugin are: Base ClearCase: selected View name: ${USER_NAME}_test_view Config spec: element * CHECKEDOUT element * /main/LATEST Load rules: /CodeStorage Use update: unchecked Branch(es): empty Excluded Regions: empty Addition mkview arguments: empty Filter 'Destroy sub branch' event: unchecked Remove clearcase view on rename: unchecked Multi-site poll buffer: 0 Use dynamic view: checked View root: W:\ Create view if view doesn't exist: unchecked Use time rule config spec: unchecked Do Not Reset Config Spec: checked The following stack trace is printed to the console upon job deletion: Jun 9, 2010 8:30:46 AM hudson.plugins.clearcase.AbstractClearCaseScm$ItemListenerImpl onDeleted WARNING: Failed to remove ClearCase view java.lang.NullPointerException at hudson.plugins.clearcase.AbstractClearCaseScm$ItemListenerImpl.onDeleted(AbstractClearCaseScm.java:579) at hudson.model.Hudson.deleteJob(Hudson.java:2014) at hudson.model.AbstractItem.delete(AbstractItem.java:270) at hudson.model.AbstractItem.doDoDelete(AbstractItem.java:249) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Unknown Source) at org.kohsuke.stapler.Function$InstanceFunction.invoke(Function.java:235) at org.kohsuke.stapler.Function.bindAndInvoke(Function.java:116) at org.kohsuke.stapler.Function.bindAndInvokeAndServeResponse(Function.java:57) at org.kohsuke.stapler.MetaClass$1.doDispatch(MetaClass.java:75) at org.kohsuke.stapler.NameBasedDispatcher.dispatch(NameBasedDispatcher.java:30) at org.kohsuke.stapler.Stapler.invoke(Stapler.java:525) at org.kohsuke.stapler.MetaClass$6.doDispatch(MetaClass.java:181) at org.kohsuke.stapler.NameBasedDispatcher.dispatch(NameBasedDispatcher.java:30) at org.kohsuke.stapler.Stapler.invoke(Stapler.java:525) at org.kohsuke.stapler.Stapler.invoke(Stapler.java:441) at org.kohsuke.stapler.Stapler.service(Stapler.java:123) at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:45) at winstone.ServletConfiguration.execute(ServletConfiguration.java:249) at winstone.RequestDispatcher.forward(RequestDispatcher.java:335) at winstone.RequestDispatcher.doFilter(RequestDispatcher.java:378) at hudson.util.PluginServletFilter$1.doFilter(PluginServletFilter.java:94) at hudson.plugins.greenballs.GreenBallFilter.doFilter(GreenBallFilter.java:51) at hudson.util.PluginServletFilter$1.doFilter(PluginServletFilter.java:97) at hudson.util.PluginServletFilter.doFilter(PluginServletFilter.java:86) at winstone.FilterConfiguration.execute(FilterConfiguration.java:195) at winstone.RequestDispatcher.doFilter(RequestDispatcher.java:368) at hudson.security.csrf.CrumbFilter.doFilter(CrumbFilter.java:47) at winstone.FilterConfiguration.execute(FilterConfiguration.java:195) at winstone.RequestDispatcher.doFilter(RequestDispatcher.java:368) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:84) at hudson.security.UnwrapSecurityExceptionFilter.doFilter(UnwrapSecurityExceptionFilter.java:51) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:87) at org.acegisecurity.ui.ExceptionTranslationFilter.doFilter(ExceptionTranslationFilter.java:166) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:87) at org.acegisecurity.providers.anonymous.AnonymousProcessingFilter.doFilter(AnonymousProcessingFilter.java:125) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:87) at org.acegisecurity.ui.rememberme.RememberMeProcessingFilter.doFilter(RememberMeProcessingFilter.java:142) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:87) at org.acegisecurity.ui.AbstractProcessingFilter.doFilter(AbstractProcessingFilter.java:271) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:87) at org.acegisecurity.ui.basicauth.BasicProcessingFilter.doFilter(BasicProcessingFilter.java:173) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:87) at org.acegisecurity.context.HttpSessionContextIntegrationFilter.doFilter(HttpSessionContextIntegrationFilter.java:249) at hudson.security.HttpSessionContextIntegrationFilter2.doFilter(HttpSessionContextIntegrationFilter2.java:66) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter$1.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:87) at hudson.security.ChainedServletFilter.doFilter(ChainedServletFilter.java:76) at hudson.security.HudsonFilter.doFilter(HudsonFilter.java:164) at winstone.FilterConfiguration.execute(FilterConfiguration.java:195) at winstone.RequestDispatcher.doFilter(RequestDispatcher.java:368) at winstone.RequestDispatcher.forward(RequestDispatcher.java:333) at winstone.RequestHandlerThread.processRequest(RequestHandlerThread.java:244) at winstone.RequestHandlerThread.run(RequestHandlerThread.java:150) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
