Openfire 4 and Hazelcast 2.2.0

Hello,

I am attempting to build a new cluster with two Openfire servers that have version 4.0 installed. When I install the hazelcast plugin on each server and then open clustering settings I get the following error:

Exception:

java.lang.NullPointerException

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help!

That error should not happen, but perhaps indicates that the cluster has not actually been started. I have opened OF-1045 to track this issue.

As a possible workaround, you can try starting the cluster at startup by adding the following XML property to your conf/openfire.xml (before the tag):

true

You can make this change on each of the servers in your cluster when Openfire is stopped, and the cluster should be enabled upon restart.

I am not the original poster, but I have this issue too [1]. I tried your suggestion “true” and it didn’t help. In fact, after restart, clustering still shows disabled even though openfire.xml has this setting.

I’ve reproduced on a fresh OF 4.0 install with just just hazelcast plugin. There isn’t much to it, a one node cluster. Enable clustering results in “java.lang.NullPointerException”

I tried using:

both JDK 1.7 and JDK 1.8

both using multicast and tcp-ip explicitly listing each member in the Hazlecast plugin

on both Fedora 22 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

[1] I will move to another thread if that’s the preferred way to do things here.

By default I see that error too, but for my config it’s not a problem, I’m using manual config with list of nodes added into “/opt/openfire/plugins/hazelcast/classes/hazelcast-cache-config.xml” like it described in manual:

of-node-a.example.com:5701

of-node-b.example.com:5701

and it shows no exception with that config set.

I’ve tried similar manual config using tcp-ip enabled and still have the issue.

We have a prospective fix for this issue, thanks for reporting. Feel free to track the current status via OF-1045.

I still get a crash, both servers 4.0.1.

I see this exception as well and it seems related to something I reported here a couple of days ago: NPE during hazelcast init.

When the NPE during init happens, I’ll see the same NPE as described in the discussion.

Hi,

I’m still facing the issue in OF 4.0.3 version. For one node it is showing enabled but for another still showing disabled.

Thanks,
