Problem conclusion

  • Problem in the javaapi.jar BdConverter class 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 has been
    applied in 5.0.0.3-P8CE-FP003 and higher.
