Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of the IBM WebSphere              *
    *                  Application Server                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The batch runtime code is producing     *
    *                      stack traces in the SystemOut.log,      *
    *                      even in the absence of a true error     *
    *                      condition.                              *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************

    controller SYSOUT (on z/OS) and in the SystemOut.log (on
    Distributed operating systems):
    java.lang.NullPointerException

    a:5833)
    

Problem conclusion

  • This particular null pointer condition was converted to a
    trace record, so it only appears with appropriately detailed
    trace enabled and is targeted to IBM support rather than the
    external user.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.12 and 9.0.0.3.  Please refer to the
