Application Requirement:


The document handler URL had been a non-required field for a document type but many places in the system the field was assumed to be filled in. In many places NullPointerExceptions would have been thrown if a document type makes it into the system with no document handler url. We need to verify that those places are fixed so that if the document type has an empty document handler url that it will not get a URL link rendered.

Two main places to check for this start with but are not limited to Document Search and Action List.

Comment by Chad Hagstrom [ 27/Apr/09 ]

The only places I've found thus far that require modification are: KCBNotificationService at about line 63, and DocSearchDTO at line 191. I've changed these locations so that they now check if the doc handler URLs are blank before trying to use them. Also, although ClientAppDocHandlerRedirectAction.execute will throw an exception if the doc handler URL is blank, I discussed this with David and discovered that this behavior is intentional. In addition, I've removed the DocumentTypeBusinessRules and DocumentTypeBusinessRulesTest classes, since they won't be needed if blank doc handler URLs are now permissible. I believe I've fixed all of the necessary areas for this issue, so I'm ready to commit the fix as soon as the 1.0 branch is created on SVN.

Sounds good Chad. Go ahead and commit when you get over to that branch. Thanks.
