Error description

  • When you call a SCA export with openSCA client, you might
    receive a NullPointerException on SCA code while the message
    is being processed if the WSDL interface contains none-wrapper
    array (maxOccurs="unbounded") in the request root element and
    more than one item is sent for the array. Furthermore, in the
    FFDC log, you might find an exception stack that is similar to
    the following exception stack in the FFDC log:
