Information in this document applies to any platform.


Whenever the test framework (Unit test) is used as a client for invoking asynchronous services of a composite configured with Direct binding , the execution of the component fails with the exception 'The service path "null" is invalid', while receiving the callback.

When running the test from the Enterprise Manager console, the unit test indicators report that the test completes successfully. However, when you view the composite instance flow trace, we find that the BPEL instance is actually faulted when attempting the callback invocation with the following error message:

<part name="summary" >
<summary>oracle.fabric.common.FabricInvocationException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The service path "null" is invalid</summary>
<part name="detail" >
<detail>The service path "null" is invalid</detail>
<part name="code" >
