Unable to start MWS -- java.lang.NullPointerException

Hi All,

There is a change in DB. So, shut down IS, MWS. Changed db pools of IS, pointed to new Db in files under pool folder, started which is UP and running. For MWS, changed DB details in mws.db.xml in /MWS/server/default/config/ folder. I tried to start which didn’t come up saying below error:

So I stopped the MWS, created a new instance default2 with ./mws.sh new -Dserver.name=default2 … syntax, pointed correct db details in mws.db.xml file and tried to start mws with syntax: ./mws.sh -s default2 run &

In logs, it keeps writing below statement:

./mws.sh: line 353: 6428 Killed $RUN_CMD

Did someone come across this error, kindly help me to resolve this.

Thanks,
Anil.

Hi Anil,

sounds that somehow the new mws schema was not migrated or initialized correctly.

If this is just a move (or copy) of an existing schema from one database to another reconfiguring the servers should be sufficient.

If this correlates with a wM migration from one version to another make sure that the appropiate steps have been followed.

Which version of wM is this occuring on?

Regards,
Holger

Thanks Holger for your swift response.

We are on wM8.2.2. It is a new installation on RHL which was done a month ago. Client asked us to use different DB. So, created tables using DBCC on the new DB. Modified DB entries in mws.db.xml for MWS. Now tried to start MWS using run.ksh but still getting same ‘java.lang.NullPointerException’ exception. Any clue how can I overcome this ?

Thanks,
Anil.

Hi Anil,

please ask the DBA to export the schema from the old DB and then import it to the new DB.
Hope that the DBs are of identical type and version otherwise you will have to completely recreate the MWS.

For the time from export to import shutdown IS and MWS.
After import is completed try to restart MWS first before starting IS.

If this does not help you will have to uninstall MWS, recreate DB-Schema, re-install MWS.
After MWS has been started once again you will have to do all the configurations in MWS again.

Regards,
Holger

Holger,

When we created tables again, changed details in mws.db.xml then we are trying to start the MWS, it should point to new DB, use it. Why we have to import the existing db to new one ?

Thanks,
Anil.

Hi Anil,

this is due to the fact that the MWS will not recreate the required informations when pointed to an empty database.

MWS stores quite a lot of its configuration in the database when it is started for the first time after installation.

By exporting and importing the configured schema the MWS will recognize these informations.
This will not happen when the MWS is started against a fresh database schema.

Regards,
Holger
