Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 234190
getEntitlements in SystemHandler.java doesn't check for null GroupTypes
Last modified: 2007-07-31 12:17:45 EDT
getEntitlements doesn't check to see if the return from "group.getGroupType()"
is null before trying to call "getLabel()" on it. The result is that this
function will return an exception whenever a system is in a user created group
(which will have groupType null within the DB).
The result of this, is that if you a script using the RHN API calls
system.getEntitlements, if the system is associated with a system group, an
internal exception will occur.
A method "getEntitlements" was added to Server.java within the 5.0 code base.
This method does correctly check for a null return non getGroupType(), but the
getEntitlements method within SystemHandler.java was not changed to handle it

patch for xmlrpc
We have two option: include groups label or include group labels. As users can
label his group as eg. Provisioning, this is no way. So we just ignore the
