  • Tested with nexus-webapp-1.4.0-20090921.151638-573.war and Apache Tomcat 6.0.20. I'm periodically seeing an Error 500 when I click on the UI in Nexus running as a war file. There are no errors in the sonatype log file, but I do see a problem in the apache tomcat log: INFO: nexus: [Noelios Restlet Engine] - Attaching application: org.sonatype.nexus.rest.NexusApplication@3cbdb6ae to URI: /nexus Sep 21, 2009 4:14:41 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve invoke SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet nexus threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at org.jsecurity.web.filter.authz.PermissionsAuthorizationFilter.isAccessAllowed(PermissionsAuthorizationFilter.java:45) at org.sonatype.nexus.security.filter.authz.HttpVerbMappingAuthorizationFilter.isAccessAllowed(HttpVerbMappingAuthorizationFilter.java:157) at org.jsecurity.web.filter.AccessControlFilter.onPreHandle(AccessControlFilter.java:145) at org.jsecurity.web.filter.PathMatchingFilter.preHandle(PathMatchingFilter.java:175) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.AdviceFilter.doFilterInternal(AdviceFilter.java:129) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.OncePerRequestFilter.doFilter(OncePerRequestFilter.java:180) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.FilterChainWrapper.doFilter(FilterChainWrapper.java:57) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.AdviceFilter.executeChain(AdviceFilter.java:105) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.AdviceFilter.doFilterInternal(AdviceFilter.java:135) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.OncePerRequestFilter.doFilter(OncePerRequestFilter.java:180) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.FilterChainWrapper.doFilter(FilterChainWrapper.java:57) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.JSecurityFilter.doFilterInternal(JSecurityFilter.java:382) at org.jsecurity.web.servlet.OncePerRequestFilter.doFilter(OncePerRequestFilter.java:180) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:235) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.doFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:206) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve.invoke(StandardWrapperValve.java:233) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContextValve.invoke(StandardContextValve.java:191) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardHostValve.invoke(StandardHostValve.java:128) at org.apache.catalina.valves.ErrorReportValve.invoke(ErrorReportValve.java:102) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardEngineValve.invoke(StandardEngineValve.java:109) at org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteAdapter.service(CoyoteAdapter.java:293) at org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Processor.process(Http11Processor.java:849) at org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol$Http11ConnectionHandler.process(Http11Protocol.java:583) at org.apache.tomcat.util.net.JIoEndpoint$Worker.run(JIoEndpoint.java:454) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:637) This seems to be occurring fairly randomly.
