Case Management Issue in BPM 11.1.1.7

Hello Everyone,

Can anybody help here ? I am having trouble while trying to start a case for simple case management sample. I could successfully setup the environment but couldn't run a single use case due to following exception while starting a case:

"<Jun 10, 2014 12:24:39 PM IST> <Error> <oracle.bpm.casemgmt.common> <BEA-000000> <Exception

javax.xml.bind.JAXBException

- with linked exception:

[java.lang.NullPointerException]

        at javax.xml.bind.JAXBContext.newInstance(JAXBContext.java:637)......"

I have installed JDeveloper 11.1.1.7 which includes WebLogic 10.3.5 server and I have installed the SOA/BPM Suite 11.1.1.7. I have added the following patches on top of this installation:

1.    SOA Bundle patch # 18072286 using OPatch utility for Oracle SOA, Oracle Common homes.

2.    Patch 15995111: SU Patch [QD3C]: TRACKING BUG TO ISSUE WLS PATCH FOR BUG 14642695 FOR 10.3.5.0.0 using Smart Update tool.

3.    Patch 14526899: SU Patch [GJP7]: TRACKING BUG TO ISSUE WLS PATCH FOR BUG 14306399 using Smart Update tool.

And I've changed the JDK 1.6 update 24 (which was bundled along with Jdeveloper + weblogic package) to JDK 1.7 update 25.

Even when I create the simplest case management demo with a couple of BPM processes having human task, with set of rules which activates a case activity when a certain case activity gets completed, it doesn't work. I see in the EM console that its unable to initialize the Case Management component and is throwing javax.xml.bind.JAXBException.

Please let me know whether there is anything missing to run the case management sample. Quick reply to this post would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

    Hi Jahangir Pasha

    1. It is recommended to use WLS 10.3.6 for BPM 11.1.1.7.x

    ACM requires BPM 11.1.1.7.3 (patch 18072286)  and two WLS 10.3.6 patches:  14526899 (GJP7) and  14791221 (HLJ3)

    2. The KM Note 1572861.1 mentions a very similar issue. The solution is to apply the WLS 10.3.6 patch for the   bug 17190939  (HQM5)

    Hope this helps,

    Gabriel

  • This is known issue. I have faces so many times.

    Do one thing .  Go to your project folder and cleanout resource and SCA-INF folder and redeploy your project. Try to trigger you case manager from EM console.

  • Hi Gabreil,

    Thank much for your inputs. System is now able to initialize case management component and I could test case management samples with no issues.

    Here is what I've done:

    1. I've pointed the BPM 11.1.1.7.3 installation to weblogic 10.3.6.

    2. Set JAVA_HOME to JDK 1.7 update 25.

    3. Applied the patches 14526899 (KMQW), 14791221 (HLJ3) and 17190939 (HMQ5) onto WLS 10.3.6.

    Thanks

    Jahangir
