APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you install a snapshot of an existing process application
    that contains BPEL processes and these processes use web service
    definitions with the parameterOrder property set, migration
    specifications are calculated to allow process instance
    migration from one snapshot to another. This calculation can
    fail and cause an IllegalArgumentException similar to the
    following exception:
    
    Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Null object 1
     at com.ibm.xtools.comparemerge.emf.delta.util.Assert.
      isNotNull(Assert.java:27)

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is/will be available for IBM BPM 8.5.5.0 that ensures the
    calculation does not fail so you do not receive the
    IllegalArgumentException when installing a new snapshot of a
    process application that contains BPEL processes.
