    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Cloning a process app which includes    *
    *                      UCA implemented by a variable fails     *
    *                      with NPE.                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When trying to clone a process app which includes a UCA
    implemented by a variable the clone operation will fail
    because the TWProcess (underlying generated process for the
    variable) will be null since it has not been copied over yet.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To fix this, a check has been added to check if the TWProcess
    is null (clone == null). If this is the case, then it will be
    copied over and then set and then the rest of the UCA clone
    can continue.
    
    Install/Dependency information is available in the readme.txt
    on FixCentral. When the user goes to the download files page
    in FixCentral, the readme will be available with the fix
    package as a separate download.
    

Temporary fix

  • Delete the UCA with the variable implementation and then clone
    the process app. Or set the UCA to be implemented by a service
    and then clone the process app.
