java.lang.NullPointerException

There are no available Samebug tips for this exception. Do you have an idea how to solve this issue? A short tip would help users who saw this issue last week.

  • It appears a non passive change was introduced in the client which requires the SingleSignOutFilter to have its init method invoked. This is not ideal when using a DI such as Spring and Spring Security since the init method is not participating in the lifecycle. In short, with 3.2.x the SingleSignOutFilter can be configured with the instructions found in the [Spring Security reference|http://docs.spring.io/spring-security/site/docs/3.2.x/reference/htmlsingle/#cas-singlelogout]. Updating to CAS 3.3.x produces the following error: {code} java.lang.NullPointerException at org.jasig.cas.client.util.CommonUtils.safeGetParameter(CommonUtils.java:330) at org.jasig.cas.client.session.SingleSignOutHandler.isTokenRequest(SingleSignOutHandler.java:114) at org.jasig.cas.client.session.SingleSignOutFilter.doFilter(SingleSignOutFilter.java:66) at org.springframework.security.web.FilterChainProxy$VirtualFilterChain.doFilter(FilterChainProxy.java:342) at org.springframework.security.web.authentication.logout.LogoutFilter.doFilter(LogoutFilter.java:110) at org.springframework.security.web.FilterChainProxy$VirtualFilterChain.doFilter(FilterChainProxy.java:342) at org.springframework.security.web.authentication.logout.LogoutFilter.doFilter(LogoutFilter.java:110) at org.springframework.security.web.FilterChainProxy$VirtualFilterChain.doFilter(FilterChainProxy.java:342) at org.springframework.security.web.context.SecurityContextPersistenceFilter.doFilter(SecurityContextPersistenceFilter.java:87) at org.springframework.security.web.FilterChainProxy$VirtualFilterChain.doFilter(FilterChainProxy.java:342) at org.springframework.security.web.FilterChainProxy.doFilterInternal(FilterChainProxy.java:192) at org.springframework.security.web.FilterChainProxy.doFilter(FilterChainProxy.java:160) at org.springframework.web.filter.DelegatingFilterProxy.invokeDelegate(DelegatingFilterProxy.java:343) at org.springframework.web.filter.DelegatingFilterProxy.doFilter(DelegatingFilterProxy.java:260) at org.mortbay.jetty.servlet.ServletHandler$CachedChain.doFilter(ServletHandler.java:1157) at org.springframework.web.filter.CharacterEncodingFilter.doFilterInternal(CharacterEncodingFilter.java:88) at org.springframework.web.filter.OncePerRequestFilter.doFilter(OncePerRequestFilter.java:107) at org.mortbay.jetty.servlet.ServletHandler$CachedChain.doFilter(ServletHandler.java:1157) at org.mortbay.jetty.servlet.ServletHandler.handle(ServletHandler.java:388) at org.mortbay.jetty.security.SecurityHandler.handle(SecurityHandler.java:216) at org.mortbay.jetty.servlet.SessionHandler.handle(SessionHandler.java:182) at org.mortbay.jetty.handler.ContextHandler.handle(ContextHandler.java:765) at org.mortbay.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext.handle(WebAppContext.java:440) at org.mortbay.jetty.handler.ContextHandlerCollection.handle(ContextHandlerCollection.java:230) at org.mortbay.jetty.handler.HandlerCollection.handle(HandlerCollection.java:114) at org.mortbay.jetty.handler.HandlerWrapper.handle(HandlerWrapper.java:152) at org.mortbay.jetty.Server.handle(Server.java:326) at org.mortbay.jetty.HttpConnection.handleRequest(HttpConnection.java:542) at org.mortbay.jetty.HttpConnection$RequestHandler.content(HttpConnection.java:943) at org.mortbay.jetty.HttpParser.parseNext(HttpParser.java:756) at org.mortbay.jetty.HttpParser.parseAvailable(HttpParser.java:212) at org.mortbay.jetty.HttpConnection.handle(HttpConnection.java:404) at org.mortbay.jetty.bio.SocketConnector$Connection.run(SocketConnector.java:228) at org.mortbay.jetty.security.SslSocketConnector$SslConnection.run(SslSocketConnector.java:680) at org.mortbay.thread.QueuedThreadPool$PoolThread.run(QueuedThreadPool.java:582) {code} This is due to the changes made in commit [a947490c0|https://github.com/Jasig/java-cas-client/commit/a947490c0411c463c1a5ee94a6ce72855a0d995b#diff-16e810a659623954cead35c3b19f043dR37] which assumes that the init method will be invoked. *NOTE*: This blocks [SEC-2547|https://jira.spring.io/browse/SEC-2547]
