Error description

  • When you use coaches, the user interface communicates with
    server-side code in the
    com.lombardisoftware.component.common.web.TWComponentWebUIImpl
    class. This server-side code insufficiently checks which can
    cause the NullPointerException to under load. In such cases
    there does not exist enough logging information. As a result,
    there is not enough trace information to analyze issues.
