Local fix

  • Workaround for the problem is to add the following information
    in the
    StandAlone.Properties file
    
    bpm.de.sourceInfo.versionInfo=8.5.0.0
    bpm.de.sourceInfo.productType=Advanced
    

Problem summary

  • When you run the DBUpgrade command and the profile type is
    stand-alone, the command doesn't load the deployment environment
    and you receive a java.lang.NullPointException
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 so that the deployment
    environment loads when you run the DBUpgrade command even if the
    profile type is stand-alone.
