Problem conclusion

  • The NullPointerException occurs when functions provided by the
    ejbRemote feature are started before the EJB container.  The
    WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile EJB container has
    been updated so that the exception will no longer occur.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.9.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
