Local fix

Problem summary

  • The problem is happening when WebSphere Cast Iron Studio is
    trying to compare the release-date to find recent connector to
    update the project. Few Type II connectors did not contain the
    release-date in their configuration, therefore, a null pointer
    exception was returned due to a coding error.
    The WebSphere Cast Iron code has been updated to handle
    situations where a release-date is not present.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
