    ****************************************************************
    When SDOUtil.adaptProperty() is being called by multiple
    threads to adapt the features at the same time, the
    java.lang.NullPointerException will be thrown because the
    Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) is not thread safe.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM Business Process Manager V8.5.0.1
    to adapt all the features at initialization of the application
    and avoid the concurrent issue at runtime.
