Tabbed Panel display throws NullPointerException
Last modified: 2015-01-04 18:36:46 EST
Opening the directory console to any tabbed panel display (e.g. the main Configuration tab or any nodes under it) will cause the console to throw a NullPointerException in DSTabbedPanel
This only occurs on RHEL5 with the Sun 1.6 JRE - the openjdk 1.6 JRE works fine.

Fix Description: A couple of panels were defining an isValid method to use for clean/dirty validation. However, the Component class which these panels inherit from also defines the isValid method for a different purpose. Our code must not use the isValid method, so I renamed those methods to something more meaningful in their context. I also found another problem with a null pointer access in some schema code.
Platforms tested: RHEL5 - with Sun JRE 1.6 and OpenJDK 1.6
Flag Day: no
Doc impact: no
fix verified - RHEL5 -
