Error description

  • When calling the
    com.ibm.websphere.wsaddressing.EndpointReferenceManager API,
    or during processing of a WS-Notification message, a
    NullPointerException can occur.
    
    An example of the call stack that can be generated by this
    error is as follows:
    
    WebServiceExc E

    ****************************************************************
    The
    com.ibm.websphere.wsaddressing.EndpointReferenceManager.createEn
    dpointReference(QName serviceName, String endpointName) method
    generates a URI for the parameters specified that is valid in
    the environment in which it is executed.  This process
    involves cross referencing the channel chain, virtual host and
    any security constraints in the web.xml deployment descriptor.
    In the case that a valid URI cannot be generated for the
    EndpointReference the EndpointData is not initialized.
    Subsequently a NullPointerException was thrown later in the
    code.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent the NullPointerException from occuring, the code
    was changed to prevent the initial failure in resolving the
    URI for the EndpointReference.  The code also changed so that
    a NullPointerException would not be thrown in the event that a
    valid URI could not be resolved.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.25, 8.0.0.5 and 8.5.0.1.  Please refer to the
