I've been using this Eclipse installation for over a year now. All of the sudden the builder started failing. I haven't changed any settings. The only thing could have created this situation is Eclipse had a hard crash and then the builder started producing these NPE's...

I've downloaded and installed the latest version of Eclipse, and created a new workspace and project. I cannot figure out what's going wrong.

Note that I am using Annotations.

Can anyone help me figure out how to get the builder working again?

Figured it out after hours of banging my head.

Eclipse crashed while I was in the middle of writing code. So the code that existed when I restarted Eclipse looked something like this...

public abstract class AbstractAmbassadorQueueTask implements AmbassadorQueueTask{

    // BEGIN: This is where I was working when Eclipse crashed.
    private static SessionListenerIfc l = new SessionListenerAdapter(){
    	
    } // <<< Note the missing semicolon after the last brace.
    // END: This is where I was working when Eclipse crashed.
  
    public AbstractAmbassadorQueueTask() {
        super();
    }
}

When I restarted Eclipse I saw all the compilation NPE's and never thought to look at the code I was working on. I would have expected Eclipse to tell me about the syntax error before recompiling the project.

I discovered the syntax error when I attempted to compile my project via the command line and outside of Eclipse.

IMHO its a bug.

I was working on that static listener again (see code above) and had another typo when I saved the file. I saw the NPE again. This time I knew how to fix it.

Definitely a bug.

Yes, could you please file this bug in bugzilla?
To investigate we'll probably need to know about any annotation processors that you have configured in that project.

Stephan

PS: I'm leaning towards blaming this on APT, because there a scope is being dereferenced without checking for null.
