Affects Version/s: 188.8.131.52
Windows 7 x64
NOTE: This issue does occur on Lucee v.184.108.40.206, but also occurs on the lower version of v.220.127.116.11, which is what I have installed, but I cannot enter this in the "Affects Version/s" pull down above because this version is not listed.
Sprint:January 2018 Sprint
EHCache connections have been stable until upgrading to EHCache Extension version 18.104.22.168. The prior version we were running was 22.214.171.124, and we never had any problems. After upgrading, we began experiencing a general instability with all EHCache instances defined on the server. We have not determined the cause of the problem, but rolling back to 126.96.36.199 seems to have removed the issue.
The symptoms are:
1. Verifying cache connections in the server/web admin results in a: "Error java.lang.NullPointerException"
2. Calling cachePut() throws the same error.
3. Verifying an EHCache connection immediately after creating a new one generates the same error.
Symptoms do not go away unless you restart Lucee FROM WITHIN THE SERVER ADMIN. Restarting the Lucee Service on Windows does not clean the EHCache state. This was confusing because I always thought that restarting Lucee from the Services snap in does restart Lucee, but apparently that is not entirely true.
