Error description

  • NullPointerException in portlet filter registry
    method getFilters, because of an unchecked use of the list of
    provided filters. This list is null and eventually leads to the
    exception. If this happens in the render phase from within a
    JSP tag, this will result in an un-rendered page.

Problem conclusion

  • The internal routines that handle the global portlet filters
    and the portlet application specific portlet filters was
    modified to allow sceanrios in which the portlet definition
    returns no result. Only global portlet filters will be used in
    those scenarios.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.11 and 8.5.5.6.  Please refer to the
