Problem unlocking Store in LogonCore


I'm trying to onboard users to SMP 3.0 using the OData SDK, following this example:

How To... On-board users with SMP 3.0 OData SDK (Android)

On the first run of the application (when there is no storeAvailable) everything works fine. A new secure store is created, then it is unlocked. I successfully register the new user on the SMP platform and receive back a connection id and store it in the vault.

logonCore.init(this, APPLICATION_NAME);

try {

     if (!logonCore.isStoreAvailable()) {

          logonCore.createStore(null, false);



     appConnId = logonCore.getObjectFromStore(VK_APPCID);


catch(LogonCoreException e) {

     Log.e(LOG_TAG, e.toString());


When I open the application for a second time and my code goes directly to unlockStore an exception is thrown:

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

E/AndroidRuntime:     at java.lang.String.<init>(

E/AndroidRuntime:     at

E/AndroidRuntime:     at

E/AndroidRuntime:     at com.test.MainActivity.onCreate(

It crashes on the following line in the LogonCore.class:

String settingsFormat = new String(this.storeMan.getByteDataFromStore("VK_APP_SETTINGS_FORMAT"), "UTF-8");

I am using SAP Mobile SDK 3.0 SP10 PL01. What am I doing wrong?

Best regards,

    Hi Mihail,

    There's an error in my documentation. The application should only create the store when the registration is successful. Replace your code above for

    //Initialize LogonCore with application configuraton name
    lgCore.init(this, APPLICATION_NAME);

    //Check if application connection exists
    try {

       //check if secure store is available
       if (lgCore.isStoreAvailable()) {

       //Unlock the store

       //Get application connection id
       appConnId = lgCore.getObjectFromStore(VK_APPCID);


    } catch (LogonCoreException e) {

      Log.e(TAG, "error initializing logon core", e);


    I'll rectify the guide soon,

    Sorry for the inconvenience,
