An unknown exception occured executing Validator ---root cause:0

I wrote the following code:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Object PackageNumber = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Package Number"));

String partsCol[] = PackageNumber.toString().split(".");

System.out.println(partsCol[0]);

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here I'm getting the error to access partsCol[0]

This widget could not be displayed.

I got the solution with little modification

String partsCol[] = PackageNumber.toString().split(".");

is changed to

String partsCol[] = PackageNumber.toString().split("\\.");

This widget could not be displayed.

At a guess, I'd say your custom field value does not have any . in it.

Thanks Nic,

the custom field value contains "." in it.

But java split do not considering the "." as a regular expression,instead I tried using escape sequence as "\\." and I got it.

Ahh, well done. I keep forgetting split uses regex - it would have been splitting on everything...
