NullPointerException in TdgssConfigApi

Hi,
We are using Teradata driver with JBoss-3.2.3 application server. We have a datasource deployed on the server. We are seeing the following exception when getConnection is invoked on the datasource:

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.ncr.teradata.jtdgss.TdgssConfigApi.InquirePropertiesForMech(DashoA13*..)
at com.ncr.teradata.TeraEncrypt.getClientDefaultMech(TeraEncrypt.java:687)
at com.ncr.teradata.jdbc_4.statemachine.LogonController.run(LogonController.java:77)
at com.ncr.teradata.jdbc_4.TDSession.connect(TDSession.java:113)
at com.ncr.teradata.jdbc_3.ifjdbc_4.TeraLocalConnection.(TeraLocalConnection.java:128)
at com.ncr.teradata.TeraDriver.connect(TeraDriver.java:211)
at org.jboss.resource.adapter.jdbc.local.LocalManagedConnectionFactory.createManagedConnection(LocalManagedConnectionFactory.java:150)

This exception occurs very frequently. Does anyone know the reason/solution for the same?

Thank you.

Re: NullPointerException in TdgssConfigApi

We are seeing this exception quite frequently, if not always. Can someone point me to developers of Teradata driver or may be some place where this issue can be taken up.

Re: NullPointerException in TdgssConfigApi

This exception appears to occur on Windows 2003 server machine regularly. Is Teradata driver compatibile with Windows 2003 Server?

That exception typically means that tdgssconfig.jar is not accessible on your classpath.

Please refer to the Teradata JDBC Driver Reference Troubleshooting section for more information.
