Error when running UnxDoc on BO 4.1 SP7 (LocalResourceServiceImpl.load)

Early versions of BusinessObjects Semantic Layer SDK have an error that may cause the failure of UnxDoc when importing a universe. A typical error looks as follows:

Importing [.unx] Error org.eclipse.emf.common.util.BasicEList$BasicIndexOutOfBoundsException: index=0, size=0 at org.eclipse.emf.common.util.BasicEList.get at java.util.Collections$UnmodifiableList.get at at at at at at at at at at at com.biclever.gui.unxdoc.UnxMetadataExtractor.extract at at com.biclever.gui.GuiProcessProcessingTask.doInBackground at com.biclever.gui.GuiProcessProcessingTask.doInBackground at javax.swing.SwingWorker$ at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask$Sync.innerRun at at at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$ at

The exact error trace may be different, but the common line is the following: at

The error occurs while loading the universe using the BO SDK before the universe is imported into the tool. Therefore, there is nothing that can be done in UnxDoc to avoid the issue.

The issue is fixed by SAP in higher versions of BusinessObjects (e.g., BO 4.2 SP6).

The issue is most likely caused by some internal universe issue. Usually, it is not possible to find it using Information Design Tool. The log above corresponds to an issue with the list of values based on a business layer query with a missing query. Unfortunately, the only way to find such objects is to review all list of values manually from IDT.
