Problem conclusion

  • The BValInterceptor was updated in the 1.1.2 version of Apache
    Bean Validation. This update fixed BValInterceptor to
    correctly handle beans that don't have a public default
    constructor, and therefore prevents the NPE from occurring.
    The IBM WebSphere Application Server has been updated to use
    this new level of Apache Bean Validation.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.7.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
