Coherence*Web Throws a NullPointerException from "weblogic.servlet.internal.WebAppServletContext.getEnvironmentContext" During The Startup Of A WebLogic 10.3.0 Server. (Doc ID 1548411.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 18, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Coherence - Version 3.5.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A NullPointerException is reported when starting a pre-10.3.3 WebLogic Server managed instance which has an application deployed that uses Coherence Web:

For example, this can be reproduced with the following steps:

  1. Create a WLS 10.3.0 domain with an Admin Server and two clustered managed servers.
  2. Deploy the coherence-web-spi.war as a library, targeting the cluster.
  3. Start any Coherence cache servers if the Coherence*Web deployment model uses the Out-of-Process model.
  4. Deploy a web application configured to use Coherence*Web to the clustered instances.
  5. Restart the WebLogic Server managed instances and examine their log files for the exception.
