5.3 Final release included an issue which led to following Jira being raised:
NullPointerException in jbpm-console when retrieving process definitions from guvnor
Despite significant changes to org.jbpm.integration.console.StatefulKnowledgeSessionUtilTest between 5.3 CR1 and Final, the test cases for this class comprise only one which does not include test case for method which is responsible for jBPM
At the least - a test case should be added for method: checkPackagesFromGuvnor()
The JUnit test for org.jbpm.integration.console.StatefulKnowledgeSessionUtilTest is at present invalid and mis-leading.
