I'm installing grouper 2.0 and I'm running into some problems with the
UI. I have a JDBC source defined (see attached) and it works in gsh. That
is, I can run SubjectFinder.findAll, SubjectFinder.findById and I get the
expected results. I can also add new stems from gsh. I can log into the
UI and display members of groups that were added by gsh. But:

1. If I try to add a new member in the UI by going to the page (e.g.)
"Assign privileges / Add members for [uiUsers]" and then doing a search
it throws a NPE. (See attached log1).
As Chris suggested the location of the error points to an issue with request parameters / session attributes. The form you submit to search should have:

<input type="hidden" name="newSearch" value="Y"/>

The error indicates that this parameter is not passed - or something placed in the session is not available. Do you get the error if you login, go straight to the group, click 'Add members' and search?

2. It I try to add a new stem I get an error: "Error: Could not create
folder. Error is 'must contain a non-whitespace character, Problem in
HibernateSession: HibernateSession: isNew: false, isReadonly: false,
grouperTransactionType: READ_WRITE_NEW'."
This is a somewhat bad error message which actually means you need to add a folder id. The UI doesn't indicate it is mandatory - nor the error message - so we should change that.


I suspect there is a configuration change from 1.6.3 that I have missed,
but after going through the 2.0 release notes I'm still stumped. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.
