I am trying to publish with table count as 0 for one of the tables in a generator and it is throwing a null pointer exception .

[ERROR] [taskExecutor-75 ] --- [U:][M:][P:] c.c.t.p.l.TDMPublishLog: java.lang.NullPointerException at at at at at at at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker( at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$

As per the docops,, this issue has been addressed in 4.1 version. Not sure if there is any patch needed to resolve the issue in 4.3 portal.


Previous fix was not included in the GA as it was done after the GA time.
