    NPE when add ejb3/cache

      In EAP 6.1.0, NPE happens when I add ejb3/cache using the following cli:




      with the next outputs.


      ERROR [org.jboss.as.controller.management-operation] (management-handler-thread - 1) JBAS014612: Operation ("add") failed - address: ([

          ("subsystem" => "ejb3"),

          ("cache" => "my-cache")

      When I add the aliases attribute, it becomes OK, but aliases attribute is nillable, it should ok without the aliases attribute.


      And it's OK in EAP 6.0.1 withoutthe aliases attribute.


      So I did some research, and it turned out the StringListAttributeDefinition#unwrap will return null when the attribute is not defined.


      I also believe there are more subsystems have the same problem other than the ejb3/cache.
