Hi all
I am facing a strange problem with entityManager method *createQuery(CriteriaQuery)* I got the following error:

 Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
	at org.eclipse.persistence.internal.jpa.querydef.CriteriaQueryImpl.createCompoundQuery( 
	at org.eclipse.persistence.internal.jpa.querydef.CriteriaQueryImpl.translate(

	at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
	at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(
	at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(

it is reported as a bug but I use the latest EclipseLink api (2.4.x), and the strange thing is when I test the EJB responsible of throwing this exception using an EJB client, everything works fine as expected but integrating this with the web part it just flat away with errors.
Here is the function overrided *load* since I use Primefaces API for my presentation layer:

	public List<ApplicationDTO> load(
			int first,
			int pageSize,
			String sortedField,
			com.mobiwigo.common.dataaccess.IDataAccessProxy.SortOrder sortOrder,
			Map<String, String> filters) {

		CriteriaBuilder cb = entityManager.getCriteriaBuilder();
		CriteriaQuery<ApplicationDTO> q = cb.createQuery(ApplicationDTO.class);
		Root<Application> a = q.from(Application.class);

		applyFilter(a, cb, q, filters);
		applySort(cb, q, a, sortedField, sortOrder);, a));

		return entityManager.createQuery(q).setFirstResult(first)

the functions applySort and applyFilter are

private void applySort(CriteriaBuilder cb, CriteriaQuery<ApplicationDTO> q,
			Root<Application> a, String sortedField, SortOrder sortOrder) {
        if(sortedFiled != null){
		if (sortOrder == SortOrder.ASC) {



		if (sortOrder == SortOrder.DESC) {


	private void applyFilter(Root<Application> a, CriteriaBuilder cb,
			CriteriaQuery<ApplicationDTO> q, Map<String, String> filters) {

        if(filters != null){

		List<Predicate> predicates = new ArrayList<Predicate>();

		for (String s : filters.keySet()) {

			if (a.get(s) != null) {

				predicates.add(<String> get(s),
						"%" + filters.get(s) + "%"));

		q.where(cb.and(predicates.toArray(new Predicate[predicates.size()])));

The bug I believe you are refering to is and I've verified is fixed in 2.4.x stream. What version/build are you using? You can verify the version by enabling Eclipselink logging I believe to fine, and it will be logged at login. The web component might be using a different version of the EclipseLink jar from the one that is working.
