On : BP3 version, Admin Console

When attempting to delete user session from oamconsole,
the following error occurs.

[AdminServer] [WARNING] [] [oracle.adf.controller.faces.lifecycle.Utils] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '1' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [userId: oamadmin] [ecid: 253f0930b61b2077:-19
299767:13d3c579415:-8000-000000000000785f,0] [APP: oam_admin#] ADF: Adding the following JSF error message: java.lang.NullPointerException[[

Note: When tested on BP05, java.lang.NullPointerException did not occur but the deletion of user session still failed when search results were 28+

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set the user sessions limit to greater than 28
2. login to the OAM-protected application with a test user and generate atleast 28 sessions
3. from the oamconsole, navaigate to session management, search for the test user and attempt to delete any old session
