Description sebastian.peters 2015-08-13 13:14:30 UTC
I get a NPE within socketConnector.java:150 with the current release of libreoffice and UNO API (jurt.jar)

Seems there is already a change  on GitHub. But the description of the change doesn't deal with an exception.


Regards, Sebastian

Sebastian: it seems the useful http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=9ffdcc76858bc01150727345de4dfd0ef40ed8c0 is only  on master sources (so for future 5.1.0)
Now since Noel affected himself to this bugtracker, I suppose he planned to backport this on 5.0 branch (and perhaps also on 5.0.1 branch).

With the latest update of jurt.jar to version (bundled with libreoffice 5.0.2) the socket connection to the background process works again. Thanks a lot.
