    A FR test crawl got a flurry (4) of these at the beginning: Title: Problem occured processing 'http://abex.fr/' Time: Dec. 21, 2004 02:13:14 GMT Level: SEVERE Message: Problem java.lang.NullPointerException occured when trying to process 'http://abex.fr/' at step ABOUT_TO_BEGIN_PROCESSOR Associated Throwable: java.lang.NullPointerException Stacktrace: java.lang.NullPointerException at org.archive.util.TextUtils.freeMatcher(TextUtils.java:99) at org.archive.util.TextUtils.matches(TextUtils.java:159) at org.archive.crawler.filter.URIRegExpFilter.innerAccepts(URIRegExpFilter.jav a:73) at org.archive.crawler.framework.Filter.accepts(Filter.java:93) at org.archive.crawler.filter.OrFilter.innerAccepts(OrFilter.java:96) at org.archive.crawler.framework.Filter.accepts(Filter.java:93) at org.archive.crawler.framework.CrawlScope.excludeAccepts(CrawlScope.java:316 ) at org.archive.crawler.framework.CrawlScope.innerAccepts(CrawlScope.java:245) at org.archive.crawler.framework.Filter.accepts(Filter.java:93) at org.archive.crawler.prefetch.Preselector.innerProcess(Preselector.java:114) at org.archive.crawler.framework.Processor.process(Processor.java:102) at org.archive.crawler.framework.ToeThread.processCrawlUri(ToeThread.java:264) at org.archive.crawler.framework.ToeThread.run(ToeThread.java:140) Looks like another variant of [ 1002760 ] NPE in TextUtils.getMatcher -- http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1002760&group_id=7 3833&atid=539099 I think Stack's comment of 2004-11-12 12:09, that the put to both the patterns and the patternMatchers maps needs to be atomic, is the root of the problem, and the eventual null-check fix for 1002760 only works-around the problem.

    java.lang.NullPointerException
  5. 0

    From Kris: It's me again :-) Discovered a potential NPE when terminating a job. The Frontier hangs around for the threads to finish (at least it is supposed too) but (as the following stacktrace shows), the CrawlController or more likely the CrawlScope (unsure which) does not: java.lang.NullPointerException at org.archive.crawler.postprocessor.Postselector.schedule(Postselector.java:2 69) at org.archive.crawler.postprocessor.Postselector.handleLinkCollection(Postsel ector.java:358) at org.archive.crawler.postprocessor.Postselector.innerProcess(Postselector.ja va:166) at org.archive.crawler.framework.Processor.process(Processor.java:102) at org.archive.crawler.framework.ToeThread.processCrawlUri(ToeThread.java:255) at org.archive.crawler.framework.ToeThread.run(ToeThread.java:131) Exception in thread "ToeThread #5" java.lang.NullPointerException at org.archive.crawler.framework.ToeThread.run(ToeThread.java:137) The following patch 'handles' it (if in a very simplistic way), basically just catcht the NPE, and decide that the URI is not within scope if this occurs. Maybe the CrawlController (and it should not be null) should throw an EndedException on getScope() when the crawl has been terminated? Not really a big bug, but we really should have the crawler finish at least semi-gracefully, although I should note that it did not prevent the crawl reports from being written. - Kris Index: Postselector.java =================================================================== RCS file: /cvsroot/archive-crawler/ArchiveOpenCrawler/src/java/org/archive/crawler/po stprocessor/Postselector.java,v retrieving revision 1.13 diff -u -r1.13 Postselector.java --- Postselector.java 27 Oct 2004 00:47:23 -0000 1.13 +++ Postselector.java 17 Nov 2004 15:45:25 -0000 @@ -266,21 +266,26 @@ * @return true if CandidateURI was accepted by crawl scope, false otherwise */ private boolean schedule(CandidateURI caUri) { - if(getController().getScope().accepts(caUri)) { - logger.finer("Accepted: "+caUri); - getController().getFrontier().schedule(caUri); - return true; - } else { - // Run the curi through another set of filters to see - // if we should log it to the scope rejection log. - if (logger.isLoggable(Level.INFO)) { - CrawlURI curi = (caUri instanceof CrawlURI)? - (CrawlURI)caUri: new CrawlURI(caUri.getUURI()); - if (filtersAccept(this.rejectLogFilters, curi)) { - logger.info("Rejected " + curi.getUURI().toString()); + try{ + if(getController().getScope().accepts(caUri)) { + logger.finer("Accepted: "+caUri); + getController().getFrontier().schedule(caUri); + return true; + } else { + // Run the curi through another set of filters to see + // if we should log it to the scope rejection log. + if (logger.isLoggable(Level.INFO)) { + CrawlURI curi = (caUri instanceof CrawlURI)? + (CrawlURI)caUri: new CrawlURI(caUri.getUURI()); + if (filtersAccept(this.rejectLogFilters, curi)) { + logger.info("Rejected " + curi.getUURI().toString()); + } } } + } catch(NullPointerException e){ + // Return false if this happens.
