Error description

  • When using IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition
    (RSARTE) with IBM Rational ClearTeam explorer a null pointer
    exception can be thrown if a set of projects is cleaned just
    after start up of the workbench. This occurs as there may still
    be work being done on the known set of projects. Some of these
    can be deleted by the time CTE gets to that point and can then
    throw the null pointer exception.
    
    
    An example of the traceback is:
    An internal error occurred during:
    'CMService.initializeProjects'.
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException
