Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: NullPointerException when overriding    *
    *                      web service bindings in server.xml      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If web service bindings from ibm-ws-bnd.xml are overridden in
    server.xml, it's possible to receive a NullPointerException.
    Liberty is not properly handling the case where the properties
    for a port component are not specified.
    
    An example of the error is:
    
    CWNEN0030E: The server was unable to obtain an object instance
    for the java:xxxxxx
    
    The exception message was: java.lang.NullPointerException

Problem conclusion

  • The web service binding configuration code will now properly
    handle the case where properties are null.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 17.0.0.3.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
