APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When activating the logging spec "com.ibm.ws.anno=finer" or
    equivalent, there are visible NullPointerExceptions in the
    trace.
    
    For example:
    Exception java.lang.NullPointerException caught while
    calling toString() on object
    com.ibm.ws.anno.info.internal.MethodInfoImpl@d3edb587
    
    These are benign and can be ignored. They do not affect
    processing in any way, and only affect the trace.
