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.

  • When I double click a Select values-step in order to edit it I get an "Unable to open dialog for this step"-error and PDi fails to show the Edit window, so I can't edit the step. This is the complete stacktrace: java.lang.NullPointerException at sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfoFile.getZoneIDs(ZoneInfoFile.java:757) at sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo.getAvailableIDs(ZoneInfo.java:576) at java.util.TimeZone.getAvailableIDs(TimeZone.java:599) at org.pentaho.di.core.util.EnvUtil.getTimeZones(EnvUtil.java:307) at org.pentaho.di.ui.trans.steps.selectvalues.SelectValuesDialog.open(SelectValuesDialog.java:400) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.delegates.SpoonStepsDelegate.editStep(SpoonStepsDelegate.java:124) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.editStep(Spoon.java:8712) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.trans.TransGraph.editStep(TransGraph.java:3061) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.trans.TransGraph.mouseDoubleClick(TransGraph.java:747) 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:1319) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.waitForDispose(Spoon.java:7939) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.start(Spoon.java:9190) at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.main(Spoon.java:654) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:57) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:43) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:601) at org.pentaho.commons.launcher.Launcher.main(Launcher.java:92) I'm running Windows 10 Pro build 10074 x64 and get the same error in PDI 5.0.1, 5.3.0.0 and 5.4.0.1. The error happens both when I open already existing transformations with Select values-steps as well as create new ones. I have also tried in a virtual machine running Windows 7 and there PDI 5.4.0.1 works fine.
