What's the source of the NPE?
If it's an implementation detail, then it's fine to no longer throw IMHO.
If OTOH it was another IO-related exception, it might still be fine, but as
long as there's a visible trace of the IO exception, like an error message
(in normal or at least verbose mode).
So except in the latter case, and there's no message at any log level, I'm
fine with what you propose to no longer throw. My $0.02, based on your
message only. --DD
