Hi,

I'm writing a Java CORBA client, which uses the Visibroker ORB. I'm using the following code to check if a remote object reference is still valid:

I added the try-catch, because _non_existent() was throwing a NullPointerException. The evidence was provided by the following stack trace I found in my logs:

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.inprise.vbroker.orb.ORB.getThreadLocalObject(Unknown Source)
at com.inprise.vbroker.qos.PolicyHelper.get_client_policy(Unknown Source)
at com.inprise.vbroker.orb.DelegateImpl.get_policy(Unknown Source)
at org.omg.CORBA.portable.ObjectImpl._get_policy(ObjectImpl.java:310)

at com.inprise.vbroker.GIOP.ProtocolConnector.pseudoRequest(Unknown Source)
at com.inprise.vbroker.GIOP.ProtocolConnector.non_existent(Unknown Source)
at com.inprise.vbroker.orb.DelegateImpl.non_existent(Unknown Source)
at org.omg.CORBA.portable.ObjectImpl._non_existent(ObjectImpl.java:137)
at com.acecomm.parentpatrol.surePay.SurePaySession.refreshSessionIfNecessary(SurePaySession.java:335)

Anyway, my question is this.....is there a better way to check whether a remote object reference is still valid? Preferably, one which doesn't throw any runtime exceptions

Thanks in Advance,
DM
