Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0. With the fix applied,
    that running the BPMConfig command prints a proper error
    message for invalid component names in the configuration
    properties file instead of throwing a NullPointerException.
    
    On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search
    for JR50826:
    1. Select IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from
    the product selector, the installed version to the fix pack
    level, and your platform, and then click Continue.
    2. Select APAR or SPR, enter JR50826, and click Continue.
    
    When you download fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
    

Temporary fix

  • Correct the invalid component name in the configuration
    properties file to avoid the NullPointerException when the
    property file is being validated.
