    The problem usually occurs in the first call of the
    application.  Restarting the application usually solves the
    problem.   The null object is a CDI bean.

    ****************************************************************
    JAX-RS was registering a null ejbInterceptor, which caused a
    null pointer exception when CDI processed the list of EJB
    interceptors
    

Problem conclusion

  • A null check was added to the loop where CDI processed the
    list of EJB interceptors.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.16 and liberty 19.0.0.10.  Please refer to the
