Describe the bug
We use this library to interpret messages from the AgriRouter. With the current newest version we get a NullPointerException.

To Reproduce
We use Kotlin
We have an abstract class like this:

abstract class Foo<in K : GeneratedMessageV3?>(private val parser: ByteString.() -> K? = { null }) {...}

In there we have a method that gets a call from another class that executes the parser:

message. //Is a parameter from type K
    parser() //Here the NullPointerException gets thrown

For this class, we have different implementations e. g.:

class Bar() : Foo<CloudVirtualizedAppRegistration.OnboardingResponse>(
) {...}

Expected behavior
No NullPointerException.

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • Kotlin Version: 1.3.50
  • Library:
  • Java Version:
openjdk version "1.8.0_121"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.3.0) (Alpine 8.121.13-r0)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)

are you able to share a small example project with a test to reproduce the behavior?



P.S. Thanks for the details, thumbs up for a really great issue description!

Hello @saschadoemer,

we already fixed this issue on our side. The problem here is/was the feature from Kotlin that allows you to pass static-references in an extension function through the constructor of the class. The fix here is to call the static #parseForm-method inside of the working method instead of passing a static reference through the constructor. Also, we switched from the old 0.0.1-SNAPSHOT to the newest 1.0.0-jdk8-RC1 version.

I also need to say that the code above worked on my local machine fine but on our server-side, it causes the NPE but with our changes now the problem is solved. We may be the compiling process isn't configured right so it uses an older version of Kotlin which can cause this problem.
