I am running into an error condition on the Alfresco based application's UI web page with the error message -
javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: Exception while invoking expression #{mycode.changeDisplayResults}
at org.apache.myfaces.el.MethodBindingImpl.invoke(MethodBindingImpl.java:156)


....

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.alfresco.web.bean.mycode.changeDisplayResultsEra(mycode.java:779)


This would happen if I make the changes in the SavedSearchResultDataMgr class which does the jdbc database query. The changes are –



By the way, I added a new column in the CODE_LIST_TABLE table – NEWCOL differentiate between code lists to be displayed on the dropdown based on certain business logic.

In my investigation I found that, in the method –



If I change back the query string back to it's original state without " and newcol= 'ABC'" +
the drop-down for Reason field on the screen will display all the required rows including the new values I added to the table.

ValueChangeEvent object - event is not null altogether as ValueChangeEvent.getOldValue() returning value.
Here's the part of the jsp page -



Any idea about this problem?

Thanks
