  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Client is using autodeploy with property files. The deployment
    itself is successful but the mapping the application to the web
    module and session management is not being set to memory to
    memory. The properties file based configuration (PFBC)
    currently only supports  an application configuration
    (ApplicationConfig) that contains the session manager object
    but it does not support its child attributes such as Tuning
    Params, DRSSettings, SessionDatabasePersistence and Cookie
    objects. They are currently only supported under the
    WebModuleConfig object. It is the reason those sub-sections
    are missing in the properties file when they extract the
    application using the PFBC extractConfigProperties command to
    extract the application.
    
    The APAR is opened to add other Session Manager's attributes
    (subsections) to our application template file so they can be
    extracted and applied when using the PFBC or monitored
    deployment service to deploy or update an application.

    *                      does not set the session management     *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using the properties file based configuration (PFBC) to
    deploy an application with the property file, the deployment
    is successful but the application mapping to the web module
    and session management attributes are not set properly. Some
    child attributes of session management (sub-sections in
    property file) such as Tuning Params, DRSSettings,
    SessionDatabasePersistence and Cookie will not be set during
    deployment.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The properties file based configuration (PFBC) currently
    only supports an application configuration (ApplicationConfig)
    that contains session manager object but it does not support
    child attributes such as Tuning Params, DRSSettings,
    SessionDatabasePersistence and Cookie objects.
    
    The APAR updates the existing application property file
    template to support application deployment contains session
    manager object and child attributes.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.12 and 8.5.5.8.  Please refer to the
