Last updated on AUGUST 27, 2013

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When we have defined a process with a inclusive gateway inside an event subprocess and deploy this process we get the following error;

 

HTTP error code returned [500]
 Error message from server:
There was an error deploying the composite on AdminServer: Error occurred during deployment of component: Process to service engine: implementation.bpmn, for composite: SubInclusive: ORABPEL-05250

Error deploying BPMN suitcase.
error while attempting to deploy the BPMN component file "C:\APPS\webtek\oracle\bpm\11.1.1.4\user_projects\domains\devbpm\servers\AdminServer\dc\soa_3b3bfbce-3580-4a2f-a1e6-b9413f9bc934"; the exception reported is: java.lang.NullPointerException

This error contained an exception thrown by the underlying deployment module.
Verify the exception trace in the log (with logging level set to debug mode).

Check server log for more details.
 Error deploying archive sca_projectname_rev1.0.jar to partition "default" on server AdminServer [http:/localhost:7001]
 #### Deployment incomplete. ####
 Error deploying archive file:/C:/projects/<projectname>/deploy/sca_projectname_rev1.0.jar

If we remove the gateway the process deploys without errors.
