    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: NullPointerException occurs in policy   *
    *                      set trace                               *

    During initialization of policyset trace, NullPointerException
    occurs at:
    org.eclipse.osgi.internal.loader.BundleLoader.findClass(BundleLo
    ader.jav
    a:415)
    

Problem conclusion

  • In certain Web services scenarios, the policy set component
    was trying to initialize trace by passing a null class name to
    classloader which caused NullPointerException.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.0.0.15, 8.5.5.13, and 9.0.0.6.
