Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of WebSphere Enterprise Servcie Bus and Business Process
    Manager v7.5.1 and v8 who use preloading during server startup
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The code would look for the display name of a node without first
    confirming that the node was correctly set. This would lead to a
    NullPointerException being thrown when the node was null.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was changed to check that the node is not null before
    getting the display name
    
    
    This code fix was targeted to be included in the following fix
    packs:
    
     7.5.1 Fix Pack 2 (v7.5.1.2)
     8.0.1 Fix Pack 3 (v8.0.1.3)
    

Temporary fix
