Error description

  • When you access a task in IBM Process Portal, a
    NullPointerException (NPE)might occur, which looks similar to
    the following NPE:
    
    E   CWLLG0594E: An exception occurred while initializing the
    runnable thread. Error:

Local fix

Problem summary

  • This error occurs on process instances that were started and not
    completed before APAR JR49355 was installed. The error is caused
    by a combination of receiving error events through an
    intermediate error event that were entered before the APAR
    JR49355 was installed and the use of the context.refreshView()
    JavaScript command in a coach view.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that handles the
    uninitialized object that causes the NullPointerException.
