In my case, the WEB-INF/classes/ included has these loggers turned off, but they still seem to run. I am including a patch that ignores the NullPointerException following the pattern of ignoring the ClassNotFoundException.

Details below taken from:

Symptoms When switching between projects or boards using the "Agile" menu, an error like the following appears onscreen and in the logs: java.lang.NullPointerException at$CallStack.isProtectedAction( at at at com.atlassian.jira.ofbiz.ChainedSQLInterceptor.afterSuccessfulExecution( at org.ofbiz.core.entity.jdbc.SQLProcessor.afterExecution(
