error nullpointer not handeled.

setup spread configured via global config file but no spread started.

test code snipped:

server.addMethod("mymethod", new Callback() {
    public Event internalInvoke(Event request) throws UserCodeException {
        System.out.println("process task");
        try {
        } catch (InterruptedException ex) {
            System.out.println("interrupt task");
            throw new UserCodeException(ex);
        return null; // <-- this causes the nullpointer which maybe should be handeled

Backport: Prevent errors in case a callback returns null

Proactively handle returned null values from a method callback.

fixes #2773

(cherry picked from commit 87cbde949bf9296941fa10e502a0b718cb95e5bb)


#1 Updated by J. Wienke over 5 years ago

The callback should always return an instance of Event. null is not allowed here and also not mentioned as a possibility in the documentation. I will add handling for this to the master version, but I don't think it is necessary to port this back to 0.18 as this is a usage error.
