Description Heiko W. Rupp 2012-01-27 11:18:41 EST
Description of problem:

If the code in org.rhq.core.pc.content.CreateContentRunner#call throws an exception outside the initial call block, it is only logged by the call from org.rhq.core.pc.content.CreateContentRunner#run, but no failure state is returned, which means the deploy process hangs in the UI forever in state "deploying" (it may run into a timeout after a looong time).
This may be "academic", but can occur if e.g. the plugin returns a 'null' response and thus org.rhq.core.pc.content.CreateContentRunner#call throwing a NPE
