    Repeated NullPointerException in FB 4.7

    archont Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I've been having multiple problems with FB 4.7 - in one project, over the span of two weeks, I've had to deal with

       

      1) Bitmaps that do not have an alpba channell being silently skipped from the library.swc (fixed by forcing custom quality)

       

      2) Flash builder not presenting a password prompt during AIR publishing and then complaining about the non-password being incorrect (fixed by packaging using command line, later by resizing the window unttil it refreshes and shows the dialog)

       

      3) Flash builder constantly failing to compile, seemingly at random, throwing java NullPointerExceptions

      Curiously enough, the error seems to be mostly random - whenever it happens, I switch to FDT, do some work there - maybe add a couple classes, do some refactoring, and chances are the error will disappear, just like it appeared - out of nowhere, with no rhyme or reason. It may be renaming a class, it may be a day's work - eventually it does go away.

       

      Other things that may make the error disappear is commenting out the offending functions.

       

      Apparently FB 4.7 simply hates Vectors, as they are usually causing the exception. In particular a vector's length property.

       

      Project uses 1 lib and 1 src folder - no externally linked projects, although a different Flash Builder Pure Actionscript project is used with Flash CC to build a component library.

       

      Using AIR SDK 3.8. I am able to get a working air 3.8 package (occasionally) so the SDK is probably setup OK.

       

      I've run accross all sorts of odd bugs and quirks of Flash so I'm pretty forgiving - but 4.7 is a trainwreck.

          Solution:

          1. Close Flash Builder

          2. Go to the the following folder: ( replace USERNAME with yours, path, etc... )

          **C:\Users\USERNAME\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7.metadata.plugins\com.adobe.flexide.codemodel.bridge\searchCache **

          3. Delete all the files contained in this folder.

          4. Restart Flash Builder

          5. Clean all your projects. Go to Project->Clean->Select Clean All Projects.

          Done.

           

           

          See if that works for you
