PM02017: JSR 286 RENDERING PORTLET CAUSES NULLPOINTEREXCEPTION

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • JSR 286 rendering portlet causes NullPointerException
    
    Stacktrace as below.
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException
     at
    com.ibm.workplace.wcm.sample.contextprocessor.MLContextProcessor
    .process(MLContextProcessor.java:136)
     at
    com.ibm.workplace.wcm.app.ui.portlet.extensions.ContextProcessor
    Extension.process(ContextProcessorExtension.java:126)
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ContextProcessor implementations accessing the HTTP session
     throw NullPointExceptions when being used
    with the new JSR 286 Rendering Portlet.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fix introduces a new portlet preference for the JSR 286
     Rendering Portlet that can be enabled to make the rendering
     portlet
    generate a HTTP session prior to calling a configured
     ContextProcessor. The preference is named
     WCM_CREATE_SESSION_FOR_CONTEXT_PROCESSOR
    and it is disabled (i.e. set to "false") by default.
    

Temporary fix
