    FULL PRODUCT VERSION : java version "1.6.0" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-b105, mixed mode, sharing) ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION : Linux d610 2.6.16.27-0.6-default #1 Wed Dec 13 09:34:50 UTC 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM : I have some XSLT stylesheets that compile and run fine in Java 5, but are failing in Java 6 with exceptions like this: java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: acting$dash$user at GregorSamsa.main$dash$nav() at GregorSamsa.template$dot$28() at GregorSamsa.applyTemplates5() at GregorSamsa.template$dot$15() at GregorSamsa.applyTemplates() at GregorSamsa.applyTemplates() at GregorSamsa.transform() at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.runtime.AbstractTranslet.transform(AbstractTranslet.java:602) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:711) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:313) or java.lang.NullPointerException at com.sun.org.apache.xml.internal.dtm.ref.DTMDefaultBase.getDocumentRoot(DTMDefaultBase.java:1611) at com.sun.org.apache.xml.internal.dtm.ref.DTMDefaultBaseIterators$RootIterator.setStartNode(DTMDefaultBaseIterators.java:713) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.dom.KeyIndex$KeyIndexIterator.init(KeyIndex.java:805) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.dom.KeyIndex$KeyIndexIterator.setStartNode(KeyIndex.java:747) at GregorSamsa.topLevel() at GregorSamsa.transform() at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.runtime.AbstractTranslet.transform(AbstractTranslet.java:602) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:711) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:313) While trying to find the source of the problem, I think the problem might narrow down to the way I have some XSLT files which use <xsl:import> to import multiple other files, sometimes importing the same file more than once, eg. root.xsl imports import1.xsl and import3.xsl while import1.xsl also imports import3.xsl, and in import3.xsl it defines a global variable (like $acting-user, from the first exception message). The XSLT validates without error using XSLT validation applications, and runs without error in Java 5. STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM : I haven't been able to find exaclty the problem, so the easiest way for me to describe how to reproduce is to download the affected application from http://downloads.sourceforge.net/malbum/matte-0.5.0-livedemo.tbz2?modtime=1173708370&big_mirror=0 This is a stand-alone webapp which you can easily reproduce these two exceptions by starting the application (with ./start.sh or .\start.bat), then going to http://localhost:8080/matte/add.do http://localhost:8080/matte/home.do The XSLT files used by these two URLS are located at apache-tomcat/webapps/matte/WEB-INF/xsl/upload-media.xsl apache-tomcat/webapps/matte/WEB-INF/xsl/home.xsl You can get a sample of the XML being used in the transformation by adding log4j.logger.magoffin.matt=DEBUG to the apache-tomcat/webapps/matte/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties file, restarting the application, and looking in the apache-tomcat/logs/catalina.out log file. This will log the XML being used in each request. EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR : EXPECTED - The XSLT should transform without error (try the same stpes with a Java 5 JRE) and return the transformed XHTML. ACTUAL - An exception is thrown. ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR : java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: acting$dash$user at GregorSamsa.main$dash$nav() at GregorSamsa.template$dot$28() at GregorSamsa.applyTemplates5() at GregorSamsa.template$dot$15() at GregorSamsa.applyTemplates() at GregorSamsa.applyTemplates() at GregorSamsa.transform() at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.runtime.AbstractTranslet.transform(AbstractTranslet.java:602) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:711) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:313) or java.lang.NullPointerException at com.sun.org.apache.xml.internal.dtm.ref.DTMDefaultBase.getDocumentRoot(DTMDefaultBase.java:1611) at com.sun.org.apache.xml.internal.dtm.ref.DTMDefaultBaseIterators$RootIterator.setStartNode(DTMDefaultBaseIterators.java:713) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.dom.KeyIndex$KeyIndexIterator.init(KeyIndex.java:805) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.dom.KeyIndex$KeyIndexIterator.setStartNode(KeyIndex.java:747) at GregorSamsa.topLevel() at GregorSamsa.transform() at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.runtime.AbstractTranslet.transform(AbstractTranslet.java:602) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:711) at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerImpl.transform(TransformerImpl.java:313) REPRODUCIBILITY : This bug can be reproduced always. ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ---------- The source code is included in the webapp application as described above. ---------- END SOURCE ---------- CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND : Use Java 5. Release Regression From : 5.0u10 The above release value was the last known release where this bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.
