package-info.java has the package description. Near the end you should 
see the statement "Unless otherwise noted, passing a null ...".   There 
are several areas of API that have statements like this to avoid 
cluttering the javadoc of every constructor/method that can throw NPE 
when invokes with a null argument. So this is why you don't see "@throws 
NullPointerException" here.
