Hi,
One NPE I've seen in designer is if the pfrepository.xml file becomes corrupt (usually shows as a zero byte length). Check it here:
/etc/repository/designer/PFREPOSITORYLOOKUP.xml
If it is zero, then stop all configs, delete the zero length file, and restart all configs.

Hey i checked the file you had mentioned and it said it was like 5 kb's in size. we are trying to upgrade and we litterally just installed iway6.1 and tried to run our iway5.5 processes on it and got that error, as well as a few others

my question is

is there anything we should install to help us get our old processes running on the new iway 6.1 so that we dont have many/any errors? adapters? other software? when we installed iway6.1 we only did the recomended install, even though i did notice many other options and things you are able to select when you install, would you reccomend any of these?

basically, how can we upgrade and get everything working like it does in 5.5?

we have been working on a 5.2 to 6.1 upgrade for the last 6 months, and are getting close to go live. We found this required an ALL NEW process implementation, including new dictionary formats for our XML-X12 documents. Would like to hear if you completed your project, and subsequent lessons learned.
