Local fix

Problem summary

  • While the BPMConfig command runs on a Sun Solaris platform, a
     method is called with a null parameter; however, the method
    does not accept null parameters. As a result, you receive the
    NullPointerException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix that enhances the BPMConfig command on Sun Solaris
    platforms is planned for inclusion in an upcoming IBM BPM
    V8.5.7.0 cumulative fix.
