    NullPointer Exceptions with JBOSS 4.0.2

    sailesh Krishnamurti Newbie

      Hi,

      We have a JBOSS 4.0.2 instance running on Linux and earlier today, we began to see many exceptions which are suspected to have led to an outage on one of our critical applications. An Abstract of the error logs are given below. Would appreciate any help in debugging/determining root cause
