APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A Mapping node can fail when the input message assembly does not
    contain Properties folder, however the map includes a Move
    transform of the Properties folder and the Local Environment or
    a Transport Header folder. The Mapping node will fail with an
    error of the following form:-
    
    BIP3949E: An error occurred during the  processing of a message.
    The error message is
    ''java.lang.NullPointerException   at
    com.ibm.broker.xci.BrokerCursor.toMbElementString(BrokerCursor.j
    ava:1899)   at
    com.ibm.broker.xci.BrokerCursor.addItemDeepCopy(BrokerCursor.jav
    a:1642)
    

Local fix

  • Since the input message assembly does not contain a Properties
    folder, the problem can be avoided by updating the Map to remove
    the 'Move' transform on the Properties folder.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM Integration Bus v10 and App Connect Enterprise

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A Mapping node can fail when the input message assembly does not
    contain Properties folder, however the map includes a Move
    transform of the Properties folder and the Local Environment or
    a Transport Header folder. The Mapping node will fail with an
    error of the following form:-
    
    BIP3949E: An error occurred during the  processing of a message.

    com.ibm.broker.xci.BrokerCursor.addItemDeepCopy(BrokerCursor.jav
    a:1642)
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Mapping node is corrected to detect the Properties folder is
    not present and avoid the exception attempting to perform a Move
    in that situation.
