Problem conclusion

  • The problem in the converter code was resolved, in certain
    (rare) scenarios it was possible for the conversion code from
    Java API to Java Compatibility API to create a ClassDesctription
    object that would not contain an objectstore id.  This would
    result in a Null Pointer Exception and cause calling methods to
    fail.  A fix for this problem was applied in 4.5.1.8-P8CE-FP008.
