    *                      dynamicRouting-1.0 and HTTP or HTTPS    *
    *                      ports are blank in server.xml           *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using the dynamicRouting-1.0 feature and the HTTP or HTTPS
    ports in server.xml are either not specified or left blank, a
    NullPointerException is raised at either:
    
    com.ibm.ws.collective.routing.controller.internal.RoutingInfoMan
    agerImpl.getTransportsForServerInternal(RoutingInfoManagerImpl.j
    ava:2372)
    
    or:
    
    com.ibm.ws.collective.routing.controller.internal.RoutingInfoMan
    agerImpl.getTransportsForServerInternal(RoutingInfoManagerImpl.j
    ava:23787)
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Dynamic Routing controller was updated to handle the case
    where neither the HTTP or HTTPS ports are specified in the
    server.xml.  The update handles the NullPointerException
    condition.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 18.0.0.3.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
