Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty mpConfig feature             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: NullPointerException prevents           *
    *                      application from starting when mpConfig *
    *                      feature is enabled                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the WebSphere Application Server Liberty mpConfig feature
    is enabled, applications may intermittently fail to start and
    the following exception will be seen:
    
    Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
    at
    java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentHashMap.putVal(ConcurrentHashMap.
    java:1022)
    at

    a:1017)
    at
    com.ibm.ws.microprofile.config.sources.SystemConfigSource.getPro
    perties(SystemConfigSource.java:43)
    
    The SystemConfigSource class calls System.getProperties() and
    builds a map from the results.  If System.getProperties()
    returns a null property name, this triggers a
    NullPointerException when the null value is used as a key in a
    ConcurrentHashMap.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
