Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Asset Liability Management (ALM) 5.2 with a Weblogic web server, when you try to create a new Interest Rate Code (IRC), the Reference Currency drop down list is empty.  As a result, you cannot define a new IRC using the interface as Reference Currency is a required/mandatory field.  You expect your functional currency and all reporting currencies to appear in this drop down list.

If you try to go to the "Terms" screen, you cannot enter terms and the following message appears:

Term Frequencies should be added to the Interest Rate in order to add Historical Rates

The alm.log in the Weblogic directory contains the following error:

[11-02-11 16:45:50 PM] ~ DEBUG ~ ALM ~ Error failed to get connection from DBConnectionFactory
[11-02-11 16:45:50 PM] ~ DEBUG ~ ALM ~ Error Found
[11-02-11 16:45:50 PM] ~ ERROR ~ ALM ~ [ALMUtil][getActiveCurrenciesDisplay]exception : null
java.lang.NullPointerException

The error appears to cause the Reference Currency list of values to fail.
