Oracle Tuxedo - Version 9.1 to 12.2.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When an attempt to open a network connection in a Jolt pool results in a network reset, the Jolt network reader can throw a java.lang.NullPointerException.

A WebLogic server restart was needed to clean up the stuck threads.
