    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The remote binding for an EJB can be    *
    *                      lost when the application is stopped    *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The namespace for Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs) is managed in
    the Control Region of the WebSphere Application Server on
    z/OS.  In some cases, it's possible for an EJB to be unbound
    from the namespace when it's stopped on a servant, despite
    remaining active on other servants in the environment.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The namespace binding logic around the bind/unbind process was
    made more robust, removing the window in which the incorrect
    unbind operation could occur.
    
    APAR PI24771 is currently targeted for inclusion in Fix Pack
    7.0.0.37 of WebSphere Application Server.
