IT02773: NULLPOINTEREXCEPTION OPENING A BAR FILE THAT INCLUDES A FLOW WITH A .NET NODE

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a bar file includes a message flow with a .Net node that
    references a DLL that is not in the workspace, a
    java.lang.NullPointerException error occurs when opening it in
    the bar editor.
    

Local fix

  • If the DLL is imported to the workspace, and is in the project
    referenced by the application, the exception does not occur and
    the bar file can be opened without error.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM Integration Toolkit V9.0 who build bar files
    that contain message flows that reference the .Net assembly and
    who do not have the .Net assembly in the workspace.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When the message flow is referencing the .Net assembly, but the
    assembly does not exist on the workspace, the BAR editor throws
    a java.lang.NullPointerException even though having the .Net
    assembly in the workspace is optional.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product has been updated to prevent the
    java.lang.NullPointerException.
