    When you update the JAX-RPC import binding endpoint by using a
    script or in the administrative console, you receive a
    NullPointerException error that prevents the modification to
    be finished correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V7.5.1.1 that passes the custom
    web module so that the endpoint can be updated and there is no
    NullPointerException error.
