Oracle Retail Price Management - Version 12.0.12 and later

Symptoms

We are operating on Oracle Retail Price Management (RPM) 12.0.12 and cannot create a Promotion Header after applying <Patch 20605978> on top of RPM 12.0.12.

The patch solved the original issue, but we now cannot create a Promotion Header using 'Create Promotion' task.
The new frame does not open and the Java Console records a java.lang.NullPointerException error:


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Log in to RPM
  2. Select 'Promotions' task
  3. Select 'Create Promotion' subtask
  4. Nothing happens (Java Console, when enabled, shows the error)

Result: Not able to define promotion components and component details.

Changes
