Error description

  • If the JMS Provider throws an exception that has no linked
    exception then the following NullPointerException is thrown
    instead of the original root cause exception. this can obscure
    the real root cause of the problem:
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException at
    com.ibm.broker.jmsclienthelper.JMSClientHelper.sendOutputMessage
    (JMSClientHelper.java:3115) at
    com.ibm.broker.jmsclienthelper.JMSClientRequestResponseHelper.
    makeJMSRequest(JMSClientRequestResponseHelper.java:1339) at
    com.ibm.broker.jmsclientnodes.JMSClientOutputNode.evaluate
    (JMSClientOutputNode.java:724) at
    com.ibm.broker.plugin.MbNode.evaluate(MbNode.java:1451) '

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM Integration Bus version 10 or higher using the
    JMS Nodes.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    If the JMS Provider throws an exception that has no linked
    exception then the following NullPointerException is thrown
    instead of the original root cause exception. this can obscure
    the real root cause of the problem:
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException at
    com.ibm.broker.jmsclienthelper.JMSClientHelper.sendOutputMessage
    (JMSClientHelper.java:3115) at
    com.ibm.broker.jmsclienthelper.JMSClientRequestResponseHelper.
    makeJMSRequest(JMSClientRequestResponseHelper.java:1339) at
    com.ibm.broker.jmsclientnodes.JMSClientOutputNode.evaluate
    (JMSClientOutputNode.java:724) at
    com.ibm.broker.plugin.MbNode.evaluate(MbNode.java:1451) '
    
    Additionally if the exception occurs during commit processing
    when the flow is using local transaction mode the root cause
    exception is not reported to the Syslog.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A NullPointerException no longer occurs if there is no linked
    exception on an exception thrown by the JMS Provider.
    Additionally errors in the commit phase of local transactions
    for the JMS nodes are now processed correctly and a nested
    exception stack will be observed in the Syslog.
