Alfresco + Liferay integration upload content error

Question asked by raul_bhatia on Aug 6, 2008
Hi there,

I have a problem coming up during installation of Liferay 4.3.6 along with Alfresco 2.1.0. I have integrated Alfresco 2.1.0 Community to run as a portlet in Liferay 4.3.6. The deploy worked. The problem occurs when I try to add content to my user space through the Alfresco main web client in Liferay.

javax.portlet.PortletException
caused by
java.lang.nullPointerException

After this error occurs in the web client, I cannot add content even when I go to http://localhost:8080/alfresco because I get a faces error there.
However, if I try to add content in alfresco before accessing liferay and trying to add content in liferay, it works. I am really confused, because I really cant find any references to this error anywhere on the internet. Can you please help? I saw the information over here: http://forums.alfresco.com/en/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7908,  but I dont understand what I need to do to get this to work. Can someone please give me some instructions for the solution?….Thanks!
Here is the error log that appears on the liferay page:
