If an object contains a field whose value is null, the field's object type should not be loaded / instatiated since it has no value.

Clarified the doc text change a bit.

First, sorry for late notice.
EAP 6.3.0.ER9 contains JBoss Marshalling 1.4.6, which indeed fixes this issue (JBMAR-161), which is why I'm marking this as verified.
However, the customer case linked from this bugs requires additional fixes for JBMAR-162: one fix is included in JBoss Marshalling 1.4.7 and the other was not released in 1.4.x branch yet. So here's the warning: if EAP 6.3 remains on Marshalling 1.4.6, the customer case _won't_ be fixed. (I know there is a one-off patch for 6.2, but providing a warning seems to be a good idea anyway.)
Based on Bug 1123331:
Bug Fixes in the Remoting section.
There are two issues duplicated: 1122328 and 1104328 are the same, 1102271 and 1122327 are also the same. Only one of each should remain.
This one is targeted for 6.4, so removing the requires_doc_text flag on this bug.
Should be fixed by remoting upgrade to 1.4.8 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1122329
Just noting that even though Kabir said "remoting upgrade", it's in fact Marshalling upgrade.
Verified with EAP 6.4.0.DR1.1.
