sonar correctness - possible null pointer dereference in method on exception path

 

 

 

 

If you try to access any member variables or methods with that variable, you are trying to dereference it. If its null, thats a null pointer dereference, and throws an exception.Null checks can clutter up the code, yes, but how can this be avoided if nulls are possible? They did not put in a check to validate before calling to getPersonExtension() that it too was not a null pointer reference. I believe the "Possible null pointer dereference in method on exception path" should have caught this, but it didnt. findbugs : NPNULLONSOMEPATHFROMRETURNVALUE. The return value from a method is dereferenced without a null check, and the return value of that method is one that should generally be checked for null (which requires to use Findbugs annotations to express the developers intend). But what exactly does it mean to "dereference a null pointer"?Thats why its perfectly OK to assign null to variables or pass null into a method. But as soon as you use that "." afterwards, youre dereferencing it, and youll get the exception. NP: Possible null pointer dereference in method on exception path.If all clone() methods call super.clone(), then they are guaranteed to use Object.clone(), which always returns an object of the correct type. What exactly is a NULL Pointer Dereference? I tried searching google but the only results that returned were bug reports. Some example code, if possible, would also be appreciated. A NULL pointer dereference is a sub type of an error causing a segmentation fault. It occurs when a program attempts to read or write to memory with a NULL pointer. Consequences. Last revision (mm/dd/yy): 11/10/2017. The program can potentially dereference a null pointer, thereby raising a NullPointerException. Null pointer errors are usually the result of one or more programmer assumptions being violated.

Correctness - Possible null pointer dereference in method on exception path Dereferencing a NULL pointer will cause the CPU to throw an hardware exception that usually is handled by the operating system, and generally is not a good programming style to catch this kind of exception In computing, a null pointer has a value reserved for indicating that the pointer does not refer to a valid object. Programs routinely use null pointers to represent conditions such as the end of a list of unknown length or the failure to perform some action EDIT3: Slashdot, the SANS Institute, Threatpost and others have a story about an exploit by Bradley Spengler which uses our technique to exploit a null pointer dereference in the Linux kernel. EDIT2: As of July 13th 2009, the Linux kernel integrates our patch (2.6.31-rc3). Our patch also made it into -stable.
