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.

  • Since upgrading to PDI 4.0 I cannot browse tables in the table output step or table input/output step. Immediately get "Unable to open dialog for this step". When I click details I get the following: java.lang.NullPointerException at org.pentaho.di.ui.core.database.dialog.XulDatabaseExplorerDialog.open(XulDatabaseExplorerDialog.java:98) at org.pentaho.di.ui.trans.steps.tableoutput.TableOutputDialog.getTableName(TableOutputDialog.java:1366) at org.pentaho.di.ui.trans.steps.tableoutput.TableOutputDialog.access$2300(TableOutputDialog.java:89) at org.pentaho.di.ui.trans.steps.tableoutput.TableOutputDialog$23.widgetSelected(TableOutputDialog.java:886) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.TypedListener.handleEvent(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.EventTable.sendEvent(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Widget.sendEvent(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.runDeferredEvents(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.readAndDispatch(Unknown Source) at org.pentaho.di.ui.trans.steps.tableoutput.TableOutputDialog.open(TableOutputDialog.java:915) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.delegates.SpoonStepsDelegate.editStep(SpoonStepsDelegate.java:126) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.editStep(Spoon.java:7347) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.trans.TransGraph.editStep(TransGraph.java:2610) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.trans.TransGraph.mouseDoubleClick(TransGraph.java:691) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.TypedListener.handleEvent(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.EventTable.sendEvent(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Widget.sendEvent(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.runDeferredEvents(Unknown Source) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.readAndDispatch(Unknown Source) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.readAndDispatch(Spoon.java:1147) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.start(Spoon.java:6586) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.main(Spoon.java:544) 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.pentaho.commons.launcher.Launcher.main(Launcher.java:110)
