Description:
ResultSet.getTimestamp() throws a NullPointerException instead of SQLException if I call getTimestamp() on an empty ResultSet:

Other calls (e.g. getString()) throw the correct SQLException.

Regards
Lars

How to repeat:
ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery("select something with no result");
b = rs.next(); //but doesnt't matter if called or not called
rs.getTimestamp(1); // -> NPE, but should be SQLException

Hi Lars and thanks for your report. Can you please attach full test case so I can check?

I attached the SQL-code to create a test-table and the Java-code to produce the error. You have to change the JDBC-URL in Java Code. The rest should be ok.

Lars, thank you. JDBC-URL is one of the things I wanted to look into.

Lars, verified as described on:
 - MySQL server 5.0.54BK on WinXP Pro SP2 localhost
 - JDK 1.5 and c/J 5.0 latest sources

Comments inside attached test case.

Perhaps as an additional comment: It doesn't matter if the table has a timestamp column or not. My test case was a little but confusing, but I get the same error if the id-column of the table is a timestamp.

create table test1 (id DATETIME);

Lars, I got that and made note inside my test case.

Thanks for your interest in MySQL.

A note has been added to the 5.1.6 changelog: 

ResultSet.getTimestamp() would throw a NullPointerException instead of a SQLException when called on an empty ResultSet.
