None Trouble with G4FissLib 

Forum: Hadronic Processes

From: Matthew Blackston <Matthew Blackston>

I'm using version 4.9.6 and I'm getting warnings and a fatal error related to induced 
fission when I use G4FissLib.

My goal was to do a comparison of G4NeutronHPFission and G4FissLib for induced
fission. To do the test, I modeled the physics list on QGSP_BIC_HP but created a 
copy of G4NeutronHPBuilder, and modified the following method:

void myNeutronHPBuilder::
Build(G4HadronFissionProcess * aP)
//  if(theHPFission == 0) theHPFission = new G4NeutronHPFission;
//  theHPFission->SetMinEnergy(theMin);
//  theHPFission->SetMaxEnergy(theMax);
//  if(theHPFissionData==0) theHPFissionData=new G4NeutronHPFissionData;
//  aP->AddDataSet(theHPFissionData);
//  aP->RegisterMe(theHPFission);

    //LLNL model
    if(theHPFission == 0) myHPFission = new G4FissLib;
    if(theHPFissionData==0) theHPFissionData=new G4NeutronHPFissionData;
When I do this, I get warnings like: 

Warning: try to access G4NeutronHPReactionWhiteBoard before opening

*** G4Exception : had012

And then finally a fatal exception:

G4NeutronHPReactionWhiteBoard and G4NeutronHPManager have only been 
added to version 9.6. There are several changes to the G4NeutronHPFission 
class related to this, but I don't see similar changes in the G4FissLib class. I'm 
wondering if the warnings and errors are related to other ways in which the 
G4FissLib class have not been updated with newer releases.

Am I introducing G4FissLib incorrectly or is there something that needs to
be fixed?
