I was trying to delete an IFS file from a remote server and got a null pointer exception in the IFSFIleImplRemote class.

The file had been just recently accessed and it definitely existed.
I encountered this error again ... in the same place ... after upgrading to the latest jt400.

David, I have no idea. I think this is the line that's failing:

ds = (ClientAccessDataStream) fd_.server_.sendAndReceive(req);

This would imply that either fd_ or fd_.server_ is null. fd_ cannot be null or it would have failed earlier in the delete() method. In fact, the delete() method calls fd_.connect(), which is supposed to set the server_ value.

So the only way I can see this happening is if you somehow lost the connection for your file and were unable to re-establish it. Are you doing this delete immediately upon creating the IFS File object?
