The GUI doesn't allow Saving existing SQL View after edits

Description

Adding a new layer as SQL View works well via the GUI. After this, when using the “Edit SQL View” control for that layer, the Save button returns a NPE error (similar to the 1st issue) and the changes are not taken into account.
There is only one workaround which works well: manually editing the SQL View (in the XML file of that layer), then reloading the workspaces and config; the changes (if they’re correct) are well taken into account).
See logs bellow (NPE on “Failed to create Feature Type” at “org.geoserver.web.data.layer.SQLViewEditPage.onSave(SQLViewEditPage.java:51)”.
It doesn’t happen on GeoServer 2.7.2
