Symptoms


When configuring WebCenter Search with SES,
the search will not return any results for Wiki.

The WLS_Spaces.out shows the following error:

<Dec 16, 2010 12:52:35 PM EST> <Warning> <oracle.jps.authorization> <JPS-03001> <Cannot instantiate permission class "oracle.webcenter.list.model.security.ListPermission", target "null", or actions "null" as defined in the system policy context.>

java.lang.NullPointerException: type can't be null
