The enforcement rule against null values has been in the code since 3.0.0. The attribute support in the CAS plugin is not that old.

If the values can be null, then the proper thing to do is to call StringAttributeValue.valueOf(), which produces a number of different object types based on whether the value is null or empty. StringAttributeValue itself does not permit either, so constructing one directly with a null or empty value fails.

i.e. the Unicon code has a bug, you would need to file that with them.

Our APIs all consistently document null requirements, occasional errors notwithstanding. If you call something @Nonnull @NotEmpty with either, you should expect it to fail, and this does.
