Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
     USERS AFFECTED:  Endevor users opening an element from the
    CARMA Repositories View
    
    ****************************************************************
     PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:  When the user double-clicks on the
    element to open it, a null point exception may occur.
    Typically, the problem
    happens if the CARMA connection has not been established prior
    to double-clicking on the element name.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • ****************************************************************
     Problem Resolution:  Null pointer exception was caused by the
    fact that the Stage ID for the element is not always available
    in this scenario.  Even if the Stage ID is not available, the
    element can still be opened.  A check was added to the code to
    bypass certain processing if the Stage ID is not available.
