IV44794: INCORRECT NULLPOINTEREXCEPTION FROM FIELD
Closed as program error.
Error Message: A NullPointerException is thrown in a context where a field is being used, and that field has very recently been initialized by a constructor. . Stack Trace: N/A .
An alias computation in the JIT compiler that was intended to combine several sources of information could erroneously omit one source. This caused the optimizer to conclude incorrectly that a constructor does not alter a particular field, leading it to assume that the field must be null, and then to transform the code accordingly in such a way that a NullPointerException is thrown. It is also possible that this can affect non-reference fields, causing them to appear incorrectly to contain zeros.
This defect will be fixed in: 6.0.1 SR7 7.0.0 SR6 . The alias computation was fixed so it does not omit any sources of alias information.
