Error description

  • In the web IBM Process Designer, merging is necessary on the
    server when you concurrently edit artifacts. If artifacts are
    read when outstanding edits haven't been sent to the repository,
     you receive the following internal server error:
    
    RestHelper    E com.ibm.bpm.rest.util.RestHelper
    getExceptionResponse <Null Message>
                                     java.lang.NullPointerException

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If artifacts are read when outstanding edits haven't been sent
    to the repository, merging is necessary to keep artifact
    cohesive. The merging logic relies on the presence of artifact
    constructors with particular signatures. You received the error
    because the following artifacts are missing the proper
    constructors and, therefore, can't be merged properly:
    
    Process app or toolkit settings
    Localization resource
    Theme
    Web service
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix that adds the missing constructors to the affected
    artifacts is planned for inclusion in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative
    fix 2016.12.
    
    To determine whether the cumulative fix is available and
    download it if it is, complete the following steps on Fix
    Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral):
    
    1. On the Select product tab, select WebSphere as the product
    group, IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from the
    WebSphere options, All as the installed version, and All as the
    platform, and then click Continue.
    2. In the Text field, enter "cumulative fix?, and click
    Continue.
