    Description

      I am running ManifoldCF 2.10 patched for issues 1512 and 1517.

      I recently upgraded Java to 10.0.2 (for another server on the same machine) and find that when I try to create jobs using the Documentum connector, clicking on (e.g.) the Paths tab will give this error dialog:

      HTTP ERROR 500
      Problem accessing /mcf-crawler-ui/execute.jsp. Reason:
          Server Error
      Caused by:
      
      org.apache.jasper.JasperException: An exception occurred processing JSP page /execute.jsp at line 1542
      
      1539:           {
      1540:             threadContext.save("JobObject",job);
      1541: %>
      1542:             <jsp:forward page="editjob.jsp"/>
      1543: <%
      1544:           }
      1545:           else if (op.equals("Save"))

      There's a lot of stack trace (which I'll attach) but it includes some ManifoldCF calls:

       

      Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unexpected exception type: java.lang.NullPointerException: null
          at org.apache.manifoldcf.crawler.connectors.DCTM.DCTM$GetSessionThread.finishUp(DCTM.java:117)

          at com.documentum.fc.client.impl.docbase.DocbaseDateFormat.getSeparator(DocbaseDateFormat.java:119)
          at ...
      

      If I revert to OpenJDK 1.8.0_171 (the version I upgraded from) the issue is not seen.
