SAP ESS Family Member/dependants java.lang.NullPointerException error

Hi

We are have the following problem when trying to edit or add a new child dependent fro Family member dependents. In the backend it works fine but on ess it dumps. There is no st22. we have looked all the notes and the previous sdn thread for this and applied the relevant patches as suggested in the notes. Have any of you encounter this problem and how did you guys resolve it??

The initial exception that caused the request to fail, was:

java.lang.NullPointerException

      group

      4. SAP Application components

    Hi Nasmeetha,

    VcPersInfoDetailFooter shows the radio boxes for Valid until, Validity Period and Validity as of future date.

    This is a reusable component, which gets used in all the ESS applications.

    Looks like FAM config or coding is causing this issue. Some field is blank but system is expecting a value in it.

    I would suggest you to download the ESS~Per code and have a look at the VcPersInfoDetailFooter component controller code at line 229,

    you come to know what field is expecting value. Try to correct it. It will address ur issue. If not copy and paste the code of onBeforeOutput with line numbers, we can assit you.

    Check the use case config of this particular FAM. There is some issue here with valid until.

    Regards

    Yugandhar Reddy
