IC89755: NullPointerException in Streams Studio for Import operators whose output stream is not input by any operators.
Fixes are available
Closed as program error.
It is legal SPL code to have an Import operator with an output stream that that is not input by any operators. If you submit the SPL application as a job, Streams Studio reports a NullPointerException when it refreshes the information about the instance. Additionally, when you attempt to view the application with the "Show Application Graph" command in Streams Studio, a NullPointerException occurs.
To work around the problem, add an operator that takes the Import output stream as input. This operator can be just a temporary placeholder, for example, a Custom operator that does nothing with the input. Alternatively, remove the Import operator from the SPL source code.
Users Affected: Developers who are using Streams Studio with an application that has an Import operator with no stream connections to any downstream operators.
Problem Conclusion: This problem is fixed in Version 3.0 Fix Pack 1 and later fix packs.
