Hi All,

I'm new here, and to java apps.

I have JForums installed in production environment. It is installed in Tomcat 7.

In the GlobalConfig.properties i have this :
# #######
# LDAP
# #######

ldap.security.protocol =

ldap.authentication = simple

ldap.factory = com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory

ldap.principal = CN=<A user in ldap>,OU=A,OU=B,DC=corp,DC=domain,DC=co,DC=id

ldap.credentials = the above user's password

ldap.server.url = ldap://corp.domain.co.id:389

ldap.field.email = mail

ldap.field.username = sAMAccountName

ldap.search.root = CN=<A user group's CN>OU=C,OU=D,DC=corp,DC=domain,DC=co,DC=id
ldap.principal = CN=<A user gorup's CN>

The LDAPAuthtenticator.class is attached.

The problem is when user is trying to log in it returns :

java.lang.NullPointerException

Using the same class, this doesn't happen in my local testing environment, staging, and dev. Only prod.
What could be the problem here?

Abdul,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

Can you post the full stack trace of the NullPointerException?
