    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: NullPointerException is thrown during   *
    *                      running CreateAuthDataEntry when        *
    *                      using wsadmin command.                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    There are several places during processing of the
    CreateAuthDataEntry task which don't check whether an object
    is valid. As a result, when the case of a null object is
    returned, a NullPointerException is caught.
