Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty - JNDI                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: org.apache.yoko.orb.OCI.IIOP.Connector_ *
    *                      impl incorrectly holds null reference   *
    *                      to connector helper.                    *

    Customer reported a NullPointerException in the trace.log with
    the following stack trace:
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException
            at
    org.apache.yoko.orb.OCI.IIOP.Connector_impl.connect(Connector_im
    pl.java:116)
            ...
    
    PI64494 added diagnostics in the Connector_impl constructor
    which modified the exception thrown to be:
    
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Both connection helpers must
    not be null
            at
    org.apache.yoko.orb.OCI.IIOP.Connector_impl.<init>(Connector_imp
    l.java:462)

            at
    org.apache.yoko.orb.OCI.IIOP.ConFactory_impl.create_connectors(C
    onFactory_impl.java:217)
            ...
    
    This identified an error when creating Connectors for Profiles
    which include TAG_ALTERNATE_IIOP_ADDRESS tag components, where
    no valid connector helper is passed to the Connector
    constructor.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code constructing new Connector objects was modified to
    ensure that a valid non-null connector helper object is always
    used.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 16.0.0.3.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
