I'm getting the following NPE when attempting to persist an object to a server based database:

The stack trace indicates a problem in updating an index, maybe in a new type (or a new index).

If possible, a test case that reproducea this exception will be very helpful.

Spot on - further investigation shows this is actually an application problem rather than objectdb problem, although perhaps the exception could be improved.

There are 3 processes working with a server-based database - 2 writing to the db, one reading. I had added an index to a property of the Entity object saved in the database but had mis-deployed this change to one of the services. When the first service starts it registers types with object db - this would either be the object with index or the object without depending on startup order.

I think in this case the object with index was registered first. Then when the other service tried to persist an object without the index the exception occurs. I assume the reverse scenario would cause a similar problem.

Fixing the deployment issue solves the problem. Thanks for your pointer which helped find it.

Thank you for the update. The exception will be improved.
