Hi All,

Finally I found the exact problem here.

Atually I have been receiving this error while the dot in indexOf string method. Because while checking dot or any special characters we should be careful on using direct character to check like this indexOf('.'). Since in some place it could results in -1 that if the special charater is not found. 

So, I have changed this usgin split as shown below and this will never get in to trouble,
String env =  'testttgrp--Test1.cs19.my.salesforce.com' ;

String[] splitVal = env.split('\\.');  //This is where the logic works

if(splitVal.size() > 0){
    env = splitVal[0];
}
This will give the result as expected and there would not be any issues for batch job with -1 exception.

Thanks,

Very likely the list is blank or the index # is not available of the list.
Say for instance, if the size of the list is 1 and  trying to access the index of 2.

Hi All, 

Really its getting interesting to analyse this issue!

I found some log today related to this error and following are the lines where am getting the error,
String env =  'testttgrp--Test1.cs19.my.salesforce.com' ;
env = env.substring(0,env.indexOf('.'));
system.debug('index number====>'+env.indexOf('.'));
system.debug('env====>'+env);
I tried to run the above code in Developer console in anonymous window and found the following output,
  • index number====> -1
  • env====> testttgrp--Test1
I still confused why this is happening, If anyone found the answer please let me know.
