      Description

      Dear codehaus developers,

      Today I encountered a pretty serious error, while trying to generate javadocs for my code. This was the first time I added the reporting part to my pom. Site generation worked fine without this part. After I added this part, maven gave me a NullPointerException.
      It was very easy for me to reproduce the bug. I created an empty directory and put the following pom there:

      pom.xml
      <?xml version="1.0"?>
      <project xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd" xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
          xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
        <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
        <groupId>Test</groupId>
        <artifactId>test</artifactId>
        <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
      
        <reporting>
          <plugins>
            <plugin>
              <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
              <artefactId>maven-javadoc-plugin</artefactId>
              <version>2.8</version>
            </plugin>
          </plugins>
        </reporting>
      </project>
      

      Then I ran:

      mvn site

      I've attached the debugging output and this example pom to this report.

      Best regards,

      Chris
