  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Incomplete Plugin-cfg.xml was generated so that there is
    missing WebService URI information. As a result, HTTP request
    via IBM HTTP Server or Plugin will fail and impact for serving
    WebService.
    
    This is intermittent problem, and the problem happened when the
    cache file is not written completely, then the code to generate
    URL pattern ran and read the cache file.
    
    This leads to an partial cache data used to build web service,
    which then cause some web service not built, which finally
    caused the URL pattern missing of some web services.
    

Local fix

  • Restart Deployment Manager or retry deployment

    ****************************************************************
    When generating the plugin-cfg.xml, the URL pattern information
    for some web service applications is missing. This is an
    intermittent problem.
    

Problem conclusion

  • IBM web service engine will load web service information from a
    web service cache on the disk, then build web service in order
    to generate the URL pattern for the web service endpoints. In a
    rare condition, there is a timing issue that the load of the
    disk cache just happens when the disk cache is being saved.
    This will cause only partial web service information to be
    loaded from the disk cache, which causes some web services to
    not be built sucessfully, which finally causes some web
    service URL pattern information to not be generated and thus
    not written to the plugin-cfg.xml.
    
    IBM JAX-RPC and JAX-WS runtime have been corrected to detect
    the timing conditions and to generate web service URL pattern
    information correctly.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.33, 8.0.0.9 and 8.5.5.2.  Please refer to the
