Closed as program error.
Abstract: Attempts to open a workspace that has a server without a runtime causes the migration utility to throw a NullPointerException. Problem: If you have a workspace that has a server without a corresponding runtime then the migration utility will throw a NullPointerException. You will see the following stack trace in the workspace log file. MESSAGE An internal error occurred during: 'MigrationDetectionJob'. !STACK 0 java.lang.NullPointerException at com.ibm.ws.ast.st.common.core.internal.migration.MigrationUtil.i sRealRuntimeInstalledOfType(MigrationUtil.java:187) at com.ibm.ws.ast.st.common.core.internal.migration.MigrationUtil.i sServerUnsupported(MigrationUtil.java:137) at com.ibm.ws.ast.st.migration.ui.propertytester.ServerToolsMetadat aPropertyTester.test(ServerToolsMetadataPropertyTester.java:41) ... Local fix: Remove the server from the workspace before migrating.
Additional checks are needed to ensure a NullPointerException will not occur during workspace migration.
Additional checks were added to ensure that the NullPointerException would not occur during workspace migration. The fix for this APAR is included in Rational Application Developer v8.5.5.
