The error is very very clear. Check out the following code. Its nothing related to weblogic. Its purely the application issue.

Check for NullPointerException in the following code at FrameworkManager.java line 125

com.ge.med.guide.service.component.manager.FrameworkManager.parseConfigFile(FrameworkManager.java:125) at com.ge.med.guide.service.component.manager.FrameworkManager.initialize(FrameworkManager.java:63)

I would encourage you to check it again. It might be that things were hardcoded and it worked ni WLS 8.x setup. I am not saying its related to 8.x or 10.x.

I have a hunch that your WLS 10.x might be new environment and might be lacking some details from where parseConfigFile is throwing exceptions. Thatz why I strongly recommend to have a look at the code which would give clear picture.
