Re: Nullpointer Exception when using UDF
Hi Dean,

Thanks for your response.  I reviewed the stack trace. As you mentioned the error shows up at org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.ExprNodeGenericFuncEvaluator.initialize(ExprNodeGenericFuncEvaluator.java:137)

But this probably is  a java class that comes with hadoop 1.1.1 and it untouched.  Do you think there is a bug with this Java Class for hadoop 1.1.1?

or is the way the UDF I have created using the file downloaded from - https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2361, may be causing the issue?
I read few forums that indicate the class may not be in the classpath for hadoop. Although I confirmed that is not the case.

Any further pointers or advise is appreciated.

thanks,
Neelesh

According to your stack trace, you have NullPointerException on line 137 of your UDF.

implemented these GenericJDF ( https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2361 ) on hive 0.9.0 and hadoop 1.1.1. Was able to add jar to hive
