why I am unable to set the default value for select list in 4.4.5 but it worked fine in 4.1.2?

public Object getIssueCustomFieldValueFromIssue(CustomField field,
			Issue issue) {

		if (issue == null || (issue.isCreated() == false))
			return null;

		String fieldValue = (String) issue.getCustomFieldValue(field);
		String status = (String) getDefaultStatuses(field);

		if (fieldValue == null || fieldValue.equals(status))
			return null;
		else
			return fieldValue;

	}

Always returning the null value which worked fine in jira 4.1.2.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried looking at what the strings actually are? Insert a debug line at 9 to look at what fieldValue and status actually contain?

Ahh, hang on - what is "getDefaultStatuses"? That looks like an internal function you've written. You'll need to debug that to work out why it's returning a null.
