Re: Java: fix Array_3 byte compiler failures

How could it be otherwise?  aconst_null doesn't push an array type.
At the source-code level, it has to be converted to an array type,
before you can use it.

However, I tried a more direct example:

  int baz()
  {
    Object[] x = null;
    return x.length;
  }

This generates:

  0: aconst_null
  1: astore_1
  2: aload_1
  3: arraylength
  4: ireturn

So in this case at least case the bytecode has to handle
null_pointer_node.

I withdraw my objection.
