Not able to login to APPS after cloning – Java.lang.NullPointerException

Today after cloning a DEV instance from PROD – where we recently applied RUP4 (4676589) patch, I was not able to login to APPS.

Launching a direct URL –, I was getting below error

at oracle.apps.fnd.framework.webui.OADialogManager.getDialogMessages(
at oracle.apps.fnd.framework.webui.OAPageSecurity.validatePageSecurity(
at oracle.apps.fnd.framework.webui.OAPageBean.processRequest(
at oracle.apps.fnd.framework.webui.OAPageBean.preparePage(
at oracle.apps.fnd.framework.webui.OAPageBean.preparePage(
at oracle.apps.fnd.framework.webui.OAPageBean.preparePage(
at _oa__html._OA._jspService(

This reminded me another issue where after applying RUP4 patch, I was getting blank page when iProcurement was launched. Hence applied the same fix here and bounced the apache

Fix was – changed the profile “Self Service Personal Home Page Mode” from “Personal Home Page” to “Personal Home Page with Framework”. Reference – Metalink Note ID – 859151.1

This resolved the issue and I was successfully login to APPS
