    ****************************************************************
    It was noticed that the initialization of WebSphere
    Application Server took more than 5 minutes after upgrading to
    fix pack 7.0.0.33.  The above java cores were constantly seen
    during the initialization.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was reviewed and it was noticed that
    additional Java 2 security calls were introduced during the
    initialization method of the server. The code was fixed in
    order to prevent this behavior.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.39, 8.0.0.11, and 8.5.5.6.  Please refer to the
