Probably a dupe, but couldn't find it...
Whenever you run the schemaExport ant task without the "output" attribute, you get a NPE
At the very least, there should be a message that tells you how required it actually is.
Hibernate 3.1 (didn't happen in 3.0)/ mysql
an easy fix, too small for a patch even.
on line 220 of org.hibernate.tool.hbm2ddl.SchemaExportTask, just need to make sure outputFile is not null before calling outputFile.getPath():
outputFile == null ? null : outputFile.getPath()
with the change, the ant task can output directly the console only, which is pretty useful.
btw, the above fix is for version 3.1.2
In an effort to clean up, in bulk, tickets that are most likely out of date, we're transitioning all ORM 3 tickets to an "Awaiting Test Case" state. Please see http://in.relation.to/Bloggers/HibernateORMJIRAPoliciesAndCleanUpTactics for more information.
If this is still a legitimate bug in ORM 4, please provide either a test case that reproduces it or enough detail (entities, mappings, snippets, etc.) to show that it still fails on 4. If nothing is received within 3 months or so, we'll be automatically closing them.
Bulk rejecting stale issues. If this is still a legitimate issue on ORM 4, feel free to comment and attach a test case. I'll address responses case-by-case. Thanks!
