    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A NullPointerException is thrown during the recovery
    processing of an XA Resource when attempting to generate
    auditing infomation related to the resource.  When the resource
    is from a 3rd party provider, not all the optional information
    requested by the auditing component is available and so a
    NullPointerException results.
