      Description

      I didn't know to copy chukwa-demux-conf.xml.template to chukwa-demux-conf.xml and got this error in postprocess.log:

      ----------------------------------------------

      2010-03-16 16:46:18,150 INFO main PostProcessorManager - PostProcess Start, directory:/chukwa/postProcess/demuxOutputDir_1268783176828

      ----------------------------------------------

      The problem is here:

      String[] classes = conf.get(POST_DEMUX_DATA_LOADER).split(",");

      In my case (again, due to bad configuration) that configuration file is missing and so we end up trying to split through a null reference.

      Note: I got this code from trunk, revision 924074.
