Novell Vibe 4.0 HP2


If a workspace uses a custom workspace view with an unspecified family (or family=NULL), the sidebar navigation fails to load or refresh when the workspace is selected. It is also possible that the breadcrumb trail to the workspace in the top navigation panel also fails to expand when clicked due to this problem.

The following NullPointerException is logged in the appserver.log file when this exception occurs:

SEVERE: Exception while dispatching incoming RPC call Service method 'public abstract org.kablink.teaming.gwt.client.rpc.shared.VibeRpcResponse
throws org.kablink.teaming.gwt.client.GwtTeamingException'
threw an unexpected exception: java.lang.NullPointerException


A fix for this issue is available in the Vibe 4.0 Hot Patch 3, available via the Novell Patch Finder.
