java NullPointerException when uploading rule XML file
I'm not quite sure where to put this. I'm pretty sure a bug report is in order, but I'm not sure what specifically has the bug, and I found it while trying to update some rules on my test system. Here's the story:
While updating a study in my test system after the first round of UAT, I had some new and some updated rules assignments. When I try to upload one of the .xml files with new rules in it, I get the "Oops! An error has occurred" generic error page. This doesn't happen with any rule xml file, so far just the one. I checked the logs on tomcat to see if they gave me any better clue as to what broke. There's a lot of FTP lines with Datestring values that pop up, which doesn't happen for a different xml file, so that's a bit confusing, but it concludes with a java.lang.NullPointerException. digging a little deeper, the catalina log file, and a logging.properties file I set up to ferret out the cause of an old "SEVERE: Error listenerStart" error both draw back the exception to this error:
SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
javax.servlet.ServletException: File "/WEB-INF/include/submitDataSide.jsp" not found.
This is understandable, because as far as I can tell submitDataSide.jsp is under /WEB-INF/jsp/include/ but I don't even know where to go to try to address this reference.
Does anyone have any suggestion? the sections of both the openclinica and catalina log resulting from my attempted upload are attached, the full trace of the error mostly goes over my head.
