This bug was raised for better tracking. The original, customer reported bug is 3851484. 

The bug states that IsValid operations on "eurodate" and "USdate" with "null" as the value return unexpected results. 

Run the below code,
isValid("eurodate", javaCast("null", "")) 
isValid("USdate", javaCast("null", "")) 

isValid("eurodate", javaCast("null", "")) returns YES
isValid("USdate", javaCast("null", "")) returns java.lang.NullPointerException 

Both cases should return NO especially since isDate(javaCast("null", "")) returns NO.
