We are in the process of converting our custom applications from our old SAP portal (7.01) to 7.3, and we have run into a common error when trying to deploy a web service that was written in the old portal into the new portal. The relevant parts of the error message that we see are:
Caused by: java.lang.Exception: com.sap.engine.interfaces.webservices.server.deploy.WSDeploymentException: Exception occurred during web services 630 deployment. Unable to generate deployment data for application sap.com/home~finder.
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException: while trying to read the field 'name' of an object loaded from local variable 'entry'
I have attached the entire error message to this post.
Has anyone seen this and know what to do for it?
