Oracle Access Manager 11gr2 (OAM 11.1.2.2.x) and JDK 1.7.0_80, Custom Plugins "Error: Plugin Execution Failed. java.lang.NullPointerException"

After the JDK upgrade from 1.6.0_75 to 1.7.0_80, the custom plugins, which work well with JDK 1.6.0_75, started throwing errors with JDK 1.7.0_80.

The nohup logs contains the following error:
