APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using a Message Logger primitive a Null Pointer Exception
    will be thrown when a message is received to be logged that does
    not contain the SMO Header and Version information. This
    exception is not helpful in diagnosing the problem and makes no
    reference or mention to the missing headers. This prevents
    customer from correcting the issues. A more meaningful exception
    referencing the missing header will be thrown instead.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus v7 and Business
    Process Server v7 and v8 who use mediation flows.
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The SMO Header section of the SMO is created when a new SMO is
    created. This can be removed by the user, such as in an XSL
    Transformation. If a SMO with no MessageUUID or Version is sent
    to a MessageLogger primitive or Trace primitive then a
    NullPointerException may be seen.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was changed such that the NullPointerException is
    avoided and instead an exception that shows the MessageUUID or
    Version are missing is thrown. These will need to be preserved
    by the user through any alteration to the SMO.
    

Temporary fix
