Hi, I'm not getting it. I have a
public class ArticleBook extends AbstractArticle implements {

	public Book getBook() {
		return book;

	public void setBook(Book book) { = book;

that extends
@Table(name = "acc_article")
@Multitenant( value=MultitenantType.TABLE_PER_TENANT)
public abstract class AbstractArticle extends BasePropertyChangeSupport implements,DeletableEntity {

Book itself is multitenant,too.

with this setup I can reproduce

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
	at org.eclipse.persistence.mappings.ForeignReferenceMapping.isLockableMapping(
	at org.eclipse.persistence.descriptors.ClassDescriptor.postInitialize(
	at org.eclipse.persistence.descriptors.ClassDescriptor.postInitialize(
	at org.eclipse.persistence.internal.sessions.AbstractSession.updateTablePerTenantDescriptors(
	at org.eclipse.persistence.sessions.server.ClientSession.<init>(
	at org.eclipse.persistence.sessions.server.ServerSession.acquireClientSession(
	at org.eclipse.persistence.internal.jpa.EntityManagerImpl.getActivePersistenceContext(
	at org.eclipse.persistence.internal.jpa.transaction.EntityTransactionImpl.begin(
	at org.springframework.orm.jpa.DefaultJpaDialect.beginTransaction(
	at org.springframework.orm.jpa.JpaTransactionManager.doBegin(

Can anyone give me an idea what causes the referenceDescriptor to be null here?

Any (quick Smile help will be appreciated.

Do you get the error if you remove @Multitenant?

There could be an issue with this an inheritance. Does it work without the inheritance?

Ensure you have created your persistence unit correctly.

It could be a bug, try the latest 2.4 patch version to see if it has been fixed, otherwise log a bug with all of your code and details.
