Uncommenting GenericPipelineInterceptors in jbossesb-properties.xml causes NullPointerException at startup in JBoss ESB

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • When the following "interceptors" properties in $SOA_ROOT/jboss-as/server/$CONFIG/deployers/esb.deployer/jbossesb-properties.xml are uncommented, the JBoss ESB throws java.lang.NullPointerException and fails to start up.
    <properties name="interceptors">
        <property name="org.jboss.soa.esb.pipeline.failure.interceptors" value="org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.message.GenericPipelineInterceptor"/>
        <property name="org.jboss.soa.esb.pipeline.instantiate.interceptors" value="org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.message.GenericPipelineInterceptor"/>
        <property name="org.jboss.soa.esb.pipeline.start.interceptors" value="org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.message.GenericPipelineInterceptor"/>
        <property name="org.jboss.soa.esb.pipeline.end.interceptors" value="org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.message.GenericPipelineInterceptor"/>
    </properties>
