Error in E-Recruitment Startpage

Hi SAPiians,

We are implementing SAP e-Recuitment using BSPs. We are done with the configuration part and also configured the ALE.

Also, generated the URLs using RCF_GENERATE_URLS. When i copy and paste the URL in a browser, the logon page pops up. When i enter the username(has all the e-Rec specific objects assigned to it) and password, it ends in a short dump. Below is the text:



The following error text was processed in the system DER : Access via 'NULL' object reference not possible. The error occurred on the application server DV35_DER_01 and in the work process 0 .

The termination type was: RABAX_STATE

The ABAP call stack was:


Method: DELEGATED_END of program CL_HTMLB_ELEMENT==============CP



What can I do?

If the termination type was RABAX_STATE, then you can find more information on the cause of the termination in the system DER in transaction ST22.

If the termination type was ABORT_MESSAGE_STATE, then you can find more information on the cause of the termination on the application server DV35_DER_01 in transaction SM21.

If the termination type was ERROR_MESSAGE_STATE, then you can search for more information in the trace file for the work process 0 in transaction ST11 on the application server DV35_DER_01 . In some situations, you may also need to analyze the trace files of other work processes.

If you do not yet have a user ID, contact your system administrator.

Error code: ICF-IE-http -c: 200 -u: RCF_UNREG -l: E -s: DER -i: DV35_DER_01 -w: 0 -d: 20081017 -t: 145914 -v: RABAX_STATE -e: OBJECTS_OBJREF_NOT_ASSIGNED


The ST22 dump has following message:


What happened?

Error in the ABAP Application Program

The current ABAP program "CL_HTMLB_HEADINCLUDE==========CP" had to be

terminated because it has

come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.

Error analysis

You attempted to use a 'NULL' object reference (points to 'nothing')

access a component (variable: " ").

An object reference must point to an object (an instance of a class)

before it can be used to access components.

Either the reference was never set or it was set to 'NULL' using the

CLEAR statement.

How to correct the error

If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to

find an interim solution in an SAP Note.

If you have access to SAP Notes, carry out a search with the following





If you cannot solve the problem yourself and want to send an error

notification to SAP, include the following information:

1. The description of the current problem (short dump)

To save the description, choose "System->List->Save->Local File


2. Corresponding system log

Display the system log by calling transaction SM21.

Restrict the time interval to 10 minutes before and five minutes

after the short dump. Then choose "System->List->Save->Local File


3. If the problem occurs in a problem of your own or a modified SAP

program: The source code of the program

In the editor, choose "Utilities->More


4. Details about the conditions under which the error occurred or which

actions and input led to the error.

The error is at line 136.

What could be the problem ?? I have done all the config related to e-Recruitment... Also activated most of the SICF services...

Could something be pending from BASIS front ??

Please guide...

    Hi Friends,

    The problem is solved. The issue was with SICF service activation.

    Certain system services were not activated.
