A little of column A, a little of column B.

As Rod points out, the Shibboleth code should never be hitting a NullPointerException, so there is a bug in the IdP code here.

However, the metadata that is causing that exception is in error: it's not valid for that element (or in general any SAML element) to have an empty body like that. If you don't have ServiceName, you should omit the element.
