WebSphere Adapter for SAP V6.2.x: Artifacts generated fail to run on WebSphere Adapter for SAP V7.5.0.0 on WebSphere Application Server V8.0

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

The artifacts generated on WebSphere Adapter for SAP V6.2.0.4 do not work on WebSphere Adapter for SAP V7.5.0.0 for the BAPI outbound modules on WebSphere Application Server V8.0.

Symptom

WebSphere Adapter V6.2.x BAPI artifacts with tabletype fail with a NullPointerException on WebSphere Application Server V8.0 running WebSphere Adapter for SAP V7.5.0.0.

This error occurs under the following circumstances:

- WebSphere Adapter for SAP V7.5.0.0 on WebSphere Application Server V8.0 processing outbound BAPIs
- BAPIs containing table parameters
- Artifacts built with WebSphere Adapter for SAP V6.2.0.x

In the above cases the Adapter is able to successfully call the remote function on SAP and receive updates. However the Adapter fails when serializing the table type parameters while processing these updates.

The following error message is displayed:
