    Error in SearchProvider

    807574
      In a rather large Portal 6 installation we wanted to start using the built-in search functionality now -- while the robot is working now we're having big troubles with the SearchProvider. Whenever results are found there is an error in the results.jsp file:
      JSPProvider.processJSPFile(): jsp=/results.jsp, 
      com.sun.portal.providers.ProviderException: JSPProvider.processJSPFile(): jsp=/results.jsp, java.lang.NullPointerException

      The error seems to happen in the following lines of results.jsp:
          </search:getNextResult>
          <!-- End of Display Results -->
      Any help on getting search working again is greatly appreciated... is this a code error or a search database error or something else alltogether?

      thanks!
