Enterprise Capture Batches using a Recognition Job to Delete Separators Cause NullPointer Exceptions in Commit Processor (Doc ID 2058364.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Enterprise Capture - Version 11.1.1.9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using a Recognition processor to delete page separators, when the batch goes through the recognition processor and removes any page separators and then is processed by a commit processor, the commit processor throws a Nullpointer error when committing.
The separator pages are removed and the batch is successfully committed correctly, however the Capture logs show the following error:

015-07-24T10:48:23.226-04:00] [capture_server1] [ERROR] [] [global] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '0' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [userId: ] [ecid: e6fa64e28f33593c:3c71b76f:14ec02d2c10:-8000-000000000000099e,0] [APP: capture] [[

When bypassing the Recognition Processor, or if a batch does not contain any page separators, there is no error in the log.
