Tried to remove page: NullPointerException



A java.lang.NullPointerException appears in the logs when logging off from the application.

Error Messages

Tried to remove page: 'D_XXXX' that is in use: java.lang.NullPointerException.

Steps to Reproduce

Log out of the system.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

When a requestor cleanup was performed, there existed a piece of code which temporarily set the thread in a thread container. The code did not reset the thread back to the original thread and instead made the thread Null in the container. The data page code located the thread data and used the same from the current thread. However, NullPointerException occured when the code retrieved the thread data from the ThreadContainer.


Apply HFix-39163.
